Some fun things to do with this printable:
- Color the sugar skull with markers, crayons, color pencils and oil pastels.
- Maybe you can bling them out and embellish with Crafty Chica chunky glitter, yarn, ribbons and rhinestones.
- You can fashion a few flowers from colored tissue paper and glue to the top of the sugar skull to make it extra fancy.
- String your sugar skulls onto a jute string and create your own banner.
- Découpage your sugar skull onto a pumpkin to decorate your home using Mod Podge.
- Cut out your mask, glue it on to a piece of colored construction paper and cut it out again. Heat glue to a popsicle stick and you’re ready to celebrate!
On November 2, we will be painting sugar skulls on our faces, we’ll put flowers in our hair and head downtown to our local Día de los Muertos celebration as a family. Learning about Día de los Muertos is a great way to understand Mexican culture. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to honor your deceased loved ones by creating something that is memorable and heartfelt.
