Create a Dia de los Muertos Altar
Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a Mexican holiday in which people pay tribute to deceased family members and other loved ones. Many people celebrate this holiday by building an altar in their homes in memory of their loved ones. Pictures of deceased friends and family, candles, toys, and other mementos, as well as religious artifacts, are common elements of most Dia de los Muertos altars. Build your own version of this Mexican tradition with your child and teach him about the traditions of other cultures and your own family’s ancestors.
