Celebrate in style with some fun and simple ideas for Day of the Dead or el Dia de los Muertos
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.
This year we have put together a Day of the Dead craft activity pack featuring 5 El Dia de los Muertos activies for homeschool, club or classroom. There over 40 PDFs to download and print for just $5.
Our Day of the Dead party printables 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.
