Calaveras Masks

5th grade amazed us with their paper mache Calaveras masks for our Mexican Art study. I loved hearing stories and facts from our Mexican students and celebrating their culture while educating their classmates. :)

We used plastic mask forms, newspaper, glue, and water. I always just mix regular white glue and water instead of using paper mache mix and I've found it works pretty well. Once they dried we painted our masks with Calaveras designs. Gorgeous results! Way to go 5th grade!
