Sugar Skulls are a folk art tradition from central and southern Mexico, made as part of the Day of the Dead celebration. Students can create and decorate a long-lasting skull from air-dry clay pressed into a common tablespoon used as a mold. Add colorful designs with glow-in-the-dark paint or markers and enjoy Dia de Muertos!
