I found them over at www.lucid-hawaii.com. They also have a free sugar skull template if you want to make your own.
What is boy’s day? Also known as children’s day, Boy’s Day is a Japanese holiday that takes place on May 5th. It is a day set aside to respect children’s personalities and to celebrate their happiness.
On Boy’s Day (or Children’s Day), families raise the carp shaped wind-socks also known as koinobori. Koinobori are flown on a pole with one carp for the father, one for the mother, and one carp for each child.
Here I taped one koinobori to each pencil to give to the boy’s in 3rd grade. I will make these “colorable” koi available as a free download soon.
The skull is basically a circle for the head and a box for the jaw which can be sketched in two parts.
Once the jaw is sketched, it can be rounded out a little on the bottom.
Sketch in the cheek bones from the temple area, a simple curved line like a backwards J.
Draw the eyes sockets low on the head leaving room to embellish them near the temple. Notice the sockets aren’t perfect circles.
The nose is like a long up-side-down heart.
Now sketch in the sides of the jaw from the cheek bone. Use a curved line to place the teeth. The teeth are just bumps above and below the curved line.
When you have finished your skull sketch, take a Sharpie or other ink pen and ink the drawing to your liking. Be sure to erase all pencil lines.
Add flowers or curls to the inside of the eye sockets, and flower petals to the outside of the eyes sockets.
Now add flowers to the head, cheeks and jaw. Any flowers will do, these are simple and quick.
Finally, add swirls, curls and additional embellishments.

This peacock coloring template is from the Three-Dimensional Christmas Ornament Coloring Book & Paper Crafts.
To make the peacock ornament:
1.) Color in Peacock and Feathers page.
2.) Cut out peacock body, following dashed line around the head-dress. (For best results glue to a piece of cardstock before cutting.) Cut out connector.
3.) Cut out feathers as one big rectangle cutting around scalloped edges.
4.) Fan fold (back and forth) peacock feathers using the scalloped edges (valley) as a guide.
5.) Fold fan in half so it becomes a wedge of feathers.
6.) Tape the back of fan together where edges meet.
7.) Fold the “connector” along 3 creases into a triangle, overlapping the last two sides and glue or tape shut.
8.) Glue “connector” to the back of peacock body. Let dry.
9.) Put glue on the other two sides of the triangular connector and then glue peacock body to feathers.
Have you ever seen those beautiful three-dimensional paper Christmas ornaments? Well, they are really pretty easy to make. All you need is an ornament template, some paper, markers, scissors and glue, and you are on your way to creating some beautiful ornaments.
First, color in several copies of the same ornament. It is best to color each one a little differently; it really adds variety.
Then cut them out and fold each in half with the colored sides together.
Match up the folded halves of the ornament and glue together with a glue stick. Repeat until all but the last two halves have been glued together.
Before you glue the last two sides together, place a looped piece of string in the crease and draw a line of white glue on the top.
Finally glue the last two sides together and hang on the tree from the loop.
You can do this with simple shapes and construction paper too!
Have Fun & Enjoy!
