Did you enjoy the Printable Sugar Skull Colouring Page I posted last week? It came about as a byproduct of this idea, a Sugar Skull Activity page where you can decorate your own sugar skull by colouring, cutting and pasting your very own decorations.
Kids of all ages will enjoy it, and best of all, it allows scope for lots of creativity. I’ve added several variations of eyes, noses and other embellishments. Try drawing in some extra decorative elements too.
You will need:
- Printer and A4 paper
- Crayons, markers or pencils
- Glue stick or paste
How to Decorate your Sugar Skull:
1. Print as many copies as you like of the blank sugar skull and decorative elements. They’re designed to fit on an A4 page so if you are using another size paper, just select ‘fit to page’ on your printer settings. Get the link to the printable at the bottom of this post.
2. Colour the decorative elements any way you like.
3. Cut out the decorative elements. Small children may need some assistance with this step.
4. Glue decorations onto blank skull. Get as creative as you like.
5. Go ahead and colour in teeth. You can also draw in extra patterns or decorations too.
I hope you have fun decorating your Sugar Skulls and feel free to tag me on Instagram @mypoppetblogs to show off your artistry. You may also enjoy my Day of the Dead Sugar Skull colouring page post with a little bit of information about Dia de los Muertos – Day of the Dead.
