Culture Day: Native People of the Southwest

Lots learned: our facilitator brought lots of information about both ancient and modern ways of the native people who live in the Four Corners region and the kids participated heavily too, sharing their own research and knowledge. They had fun making coil bowls in a traditional way that they can now decorate with inspiration from the art we observed.

  Afterward, we got into the sugar skull kit I'd ordered and had fun with the traditions of a neighboring culture, decorating Day of the Dead skulls together. The only problem was with the amount of glitter... our floor, hair, and possessions, and even skin now seem to have a bit of sparkle!
