azcentral.com is proud to offer a downloadable education companion to our Dia de los Muertos site.

Adults and children alike often get their first exposure to this important celebration through the colorful art, food and folk traditions of the holiday and its close association with the more common Halloween celebration.

  1. I just did a search of your site looking for Dia De Los Muertos crafts for my daughter (5) who is enamored with the holiday after making a mask in Spanish Class. I found this link and lo and behold, the mask is from your education pack! It’s great know her teachers are utilizing such great cultural tools – way up here in rural Maine! I’ll be printing out the rest of the pack today. Thank you!
