El Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is not a holiday that is normally celebrated in Puerto Rico, but since we have been reading the book A Kid’s Guide to Latino History [aff] and learning about various Latin American nationalities (particularly during Hispanic Heritage Month), my 8-year-old daughter came upon the section of this holiday and became curious. She especially inquired about calaveras and sugar skulls, wondering about the origins of the tradition of painting sugar skulls.

As we explored calaveras and El Día de Los Muertos, we found this great resource from the Smithsonian Latino Center, with Día de Los Muertos lesson plans that even included a calavera art activity! Using their calavera template, my kids and I created a fun Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) calavera craft, using simple art and craft supplies found at our local Walmart. Ready to see how you too can make this simple calavera craft with your kids in honor of El Día de Los Muertos?

Halloween is such a fun holiday for kids that it’s hard not to get into the spirit along with them! I love the vibrant, bright colors associated with Halloween – it’s no longer just about orange and black – you now often catch purple and green keeping them company! Since Halloween can be so festive and spooky-fun, it’s a great time to put together a simple Halloween party for after-school. I have a fun Halloween snack mix recipe kids will love that you can serve at a Halloween party or send in for a classroom celebration. It’s really easy to make (your kids could make it by themselves!) and my kids enjoyed the fun Halloween treat to go along with the awesome Halloween decorations we picked up at our local Walmart. You’ll find a lot of great Halloween decorations, costumes, party supplies, and of course, candy, in the Walmart Halloween shop! Ready to see this kids’ Halloween snack mix recipe?
