Every year that my boys were in elementary school, we would make sugar skulls for Day of the Dead for both of their classes. Dia de los Muertos begins the day after Halloween and ends on November 2nd. It’s a time for people to celebrate their loved ones who have passed away by creating elaborate altars and visiting the cemetery.
Dia de los muertos
When my boys were in elementary school, I visited their classrooms every year and talked about Día de Los Muertos to celebrate our Mexican culture. So when GMC approached me about working with a DIY expert to make a fall craft, I decided to continue the tradition at home and make an altar for Día de Los Muertos.
