Make calavera sugar skulls
One of the most iconic symbols of Day of the Dead is the calavera, which means skull in Spanish. Sugar skulls, a popular decor and food item, are sold in markets in Mexico in the weeks leading up to the festival. But you don’t have to live in Mexico to find sugar skulls — you can make and decorate them at home. All you need is a sugar-skull mold, sugar and water!
