1st GRADE sugar skulls

Have you heard of the celebration called Days of the Dead? Sounds creeeeeeppy, but it is far from being morbid.  In Mexico this celebration takes place on Nov 1 and 2nd. On these days families come together to celebrate the life of their loved ones who have pasted away. Altars, grave-sites, and homes are decorated with items that their loved ones enjoyed.  Sugar Skulls are made as festive decorations!

Here are some of the decorated skulls we created:
