Decorate these Day of the dead skull crafts with colorful foil art for kids and gemstone stickers. Simply peel off the different stickers, place the foil on the sticky part and rip off to see the magic! We love how easy and paint free (mess free!) this experience is! Great for little hands and a fun way to make Dia de los Muertos decorations.
Kit Details: Each of our Dia de los muertos arts and crafts kits contains a sugar skull on a velvet sticker board, 12 pieces of colorful foil artwork, 12 gemstone stickers and a wooden tool. Experience comes with 2 individually wrapped kits with different skulls.
Special tips and notes: Respectful celebration - Dia de los Muertos is NOT Mexican Halloween! Though many Latinx will paint their faces as sugar skulls or dress up as colorful skeletons, it's part of a significant cultural ritual and not recommended as a Halloween costume if you are not partaking in the ritual.
These are a perfect Coco themed party favor or craft for your next Coco movie themed party! We love to see how kiddos are decorating these Day of the Dead DIY crafts - tag us on Instagram to share!
