Here is a helpful list of Day of the Dead craft ideas, plus and education packet, FREE coloring book, recipes, DIY y mas! I’ll be adding to this list, check back often!
Dia de los Muertos is a long standing tradition in our family. Granted – not the family I grew up with, I didn’t really learn about this wonderful Mexican holiday until after Patrick and I married. That was 23 years ago, and every year since, we’ve honored our loved ones during this time of the year.
Throughout the years, we’ve really pushed the educational aspect of the holiday. We don’t want people to think it is only about cute sugar skulls and such. We really want to make sure people understand the history, the culture, the customs, the food – and the cute skeletons!
Here is a round-up of not only projects, but also a link to an educational site we helped put together (featuring Patrick’s artwork!), as well as a FREE PDF coloring book that Patrick made! We hope you enjoy it!
