Get a head start on the festivities by getting your supplies ready to make these fun Sugar Skulls. October may seem like it's way off, but it's only 3 months away. The skulls are Mexican folk art used to honor the deceased during the Day of the Dead holiday and they also make unique Halloween decorations. Children love to help make and decorate the skulls so they make a great craft for kids too. They are becoming more popular in some areas, and you may be able to find supplies as Dia de los Muertos gets closer, but if you are going to be ordering online, you might want to do it sooner to make sure the items you want don't go out of stock.
