KIDS ACTIVITIES AND WORKSHOPS

SATURDAY

Sugar Skull Decorating

Kids Area 1-3pm

Join us for a SWEET afternoon decorating sugar skulls for Dia De Los Muertos! Sugar skulls are often used to decorate the gravestones of the deceased. The reason they are called “sugar skulls” is because the authentic sugar skulls were made out of clay molded sugar, decorated with feathers, colored beads, foils and icing. These sugar skulls are very colorful and whimsical, not scary at all. The name of the deceased relative could be written on the skull’s forehead and then put on the altar.
