Día de Muertos Craft

Día de Muertos is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and acknowledged around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. A common gift for children at this time is a brightly-colored sugar skull, made from either sugar or clay. Here we have an easy way to join in the celebration.
