DIY Dia De Los Muertos Wreath

Fall is my favorite time of year. My birthday, Ji’s birthday, Halloween and all of the best Holidays happen in the Fall. It’s a perfect time to bond and teach Ji family traditions. The next Holiday that we are learning about is Dia De Los Muertos. I’m very proud to come from a Mexican family and it is important to me that Ji know all about it. So to observe this day, we sat down and made a fun craft and kid friendly decoration as a family.

I gathered a few supplies that I already had plus some goodies I found at Wal-Mart and came up with a Dia De Los Muertos Wreath. It was SO easy and I can’t believe I haven’t been doing this for every Holiday!

Fresas, Crema and Honey Nut Cheerios Recipe

 

 

This is a sponsored post but all opinions expressed are my own.

I’ve been on a sugar free, low carb diet for a couple of weeks now but have been itching for something sweet. I knew that if I was going to cheat, it had to be with something good. Because Dia Del Los Niños is coming up and I’ve been reminiscing about my childhood, I decided to make fresas con crema topped off with my all time favorite cereal, Honey Nut Cheerios. We didn’t go to a lot of fancy restaurants when we were little but we sure did enjoy when my mom would take us to buy fresh strawberries and crème at the local indoor swapmeet.

Fourth step: Pour yogurt and condensed milk mix into a small cup, top with strawberries, nuts of your choice and cereal. I used Honey Nut Cheerios but I also recommend Cocoa Puffs, Lucky Charms or even Trix!

The best part about this dessert is that it takes minutes to make and I found all of the ingredients in one trip to my local  Wal-Mart.  Plus, it was  a great bonding activity for the whole family. My little helper had a blast putting her cup together!
