Do you celebrate the Day of the Dead? I must admit that we haven’t really previously, all those skulls? To be honest I thought it was a bit morbid, especially for the kids. But last year my son got interested in it, really interested. I guess the truth is that kids are naturaly interested in the concept of death and sadly it’s one of the things we find hardest to explain! The Day of the Dead isn’t designed to be morbid, it’s a festival that remembers and celebrates family and friends that we have lost and the more I think about it I think that’s actually a good thing to promote to our children. These Day of the Dead crafts for kids are a great way to celebrate the festival with your children, and if your kids suffer from post-Halloween come down (mine do!) then it’s a great way to carry on some activities and learning with them that they’ll enjoy.

Seeing as I had a load of felt left over from my Minion finger puppet last week, I thought it might be a fun idea to do some kind of Day of the Dead felt crafts with my son. After all, he goes to a Church playgroup and I’m guessing they don’t teach about the Day of the Dead there?? Nevermind though, Mummy to the rescue!!
