The Day of the Dead festival
This week we have been finding out about The Day of the Dead festival that takes place at the start of November and is celebrated in Mexico and some other countries in Central and South America. We made salt dough skulls which involved mixing flour, salt and water in the correct ratio to make a dough-maths really does come into everything! Once, they were baked, we painted them with a white base coat then we designed on paper how we were going to decorate our skulls. We applied these designs to the salt dough, which was actually trickier than we thought because of the texture. We also made fact sheets to display what we had discovered about the celebration.
