Today we visited the ‘Etnografiska Museet’ (Ethnology Museum), to see the annual ‘Day of the Dead’ exhibition.
A small, but excellent exhibition, with a children’s guided tour….
…. and a popular workshop where Leon and Maya made skull masks and skeletons…
The kids enjoyed learning about this celebration! Leon even made some ‘sugar elephants’ in the morning (simply sugary water put in to the freezer) after reading up about the celebrations on the internet – he felt that the elephant ice-cube moulds could be used as we didn’t have any skull moulds!
Fortunately there were some skull moulds for sale at the museum – so tomorrow we shall attempt to make some sugar skulls…. 🙂
