Sugar Skull 
Party Games and Printables 


Although our Sugar Skull Party Games and Printables are sure to be a hit we thought we would share the original meaning behind the celebrations that started the craze!

Sugar Skulls are usually associated with the Day of the Dead or rather Dia de los Metros. Which is a traditional Mexican celebration that begins at midnight the start of November 1st and continues until November 2nd! A celebration of all those that have passed before us from the Earth. With altars of bright colors decorated in bright colors and photos, to favorite foods laid out on tables, and we cannot forget the gorgeous flowers that all help decorate for the celebration. The actual celebration begins as the gates of Heaven are opened up with the children that have come back to see their loved ones on the Day of November 1st. As November 2nd approaches the adults descend to enjoy the celebrations, too.  

Bringing everyone together!

A crown of Flowers


Objective: Now that guests have been painted in pretty art in the Sugar Skull style continue the tradition and let guests create their own Flower crowns! 

Items Needed: Flowers and greenery (real or fake!), Floral wire, Floral tape, Floral wire cutters... 

Fact: Marigolds are considered the flowers of the Dead!

Game Play: Set a station up with all the items needed, to begin have guests take the floral wire and shape it in a circle and place on top of their head to measure the length they will need to form a loose crown. Cut off any excess wire. Use the floral tape to connect the pieces to close the circle. Start the base of the crown with some of the greenery to hide the wire, securing with the floral tape by wrapping around the stems a few times. After this has been done start adding the flowers to the crown also securing with floral tape around the stem. 

The floral crowns make for a great party favor for guests to take home!
