Looking for a fun, no-prep Day of the Dead craft using materials you already have? Here is a fun one that you can do anytime with your kids – and it’s not even messy! (Mom for the win!) All you need is paper, markers, glue, and cereal – that’s it! It’s a great after school activity to encourage creativity and learning, and it comes with a built in snack 😉
Easy Day of the Dead Craft
Cereal: We used Trix and Cocoa Puffs because they are so colorful, just like the Day of the Dead skulls and decorations. My kids didn’t mind having them to snack on while they worked, either!
Draw or download a Day of the Dead skull image
Decorate the image using your markers until you have a final design. Day of the Dead skulls are often decorated with flowers. You can also give yours a fun hat or costume!
Glue the Trix and Cocoa Puffs cereal onto your design to add color and texture.
Once you’ve completed your pictures, set them out to dry and enjoy a snack!
For more Day of the Dead fun, don’t miss the big General Mills Day of the Dead event in Los Angeles on October 29 from 12-8 pm! You can also find recipes, more event information, videos, and coupons on the Cereal con Cariño homepage!
