Halloween or Dia de los Muertos Sugar Skull Mask Making Craft

Sugar Skull Halloween or Dia De los Muertos MasksChildren love to make these colorful masks and they are so easy. Simply print out (on heavy cardstock) the colorable sugar skulls from the Day of the Dead Coloring Sheets Download available on Teachers Pay Teachers. Then have your children color them in with as much detail as they like. There is also a blank skull template included in the download for children who want to design their own mask. Cut out the masks and attach a heavy popsicles stick to the bottom with glue. Then line up the kids for a Skeleton Parade.
