Day of the Dead

Like us you probably love the rich and colorful imagery of Dia de los Muertos or the Day of the Dead. This holiday is not a sad or morbid occasion – rather a festive, family-centred celebration of friends and relatives no longer with us, reflecting the openess and acceptance in Mexican culture of death as an integral part of life.

Our Day of the Dead printable pack brings together some of the imagery and principal influences of Day of the Dead to create a small taste of a very big festival. Crafts have a strong tradition in Dia de los Muertos festivities and we have also put together some video tutorials – showing how to make papel picado and beautiful decorative paper flowers – which will compliment your printables. We have put together a list of popular activities for Day of the Dead.
