Crafts with Luna & Maya: Sugar Skulls
Join us on our Facebook page for a virtual holiday craft to make your very own Sugar Skuls in celebration of Día de Los Muertos this weekend.
During the celebration of Dia de Los Muertos (the Day of the Dead), sugar skulls are often used to decorate the ofrendas (offerings), and they are exactly what their name describes: skull-shaped sugar. Traditional Day of the Dead Sugar Skulls are decorated with a rainbow of colored royal icing.
