Make Day of the Dead Masks
Teach your little one a little piece of history, while guiding him through a fun Halloween craft by creating this mask out of a paper plate! The Day of the Dead, or El Día de los Muertos, is a traditional Mexican holiday, but some form of the event is celebrated in many other parts of the world. It involves the celebration of customs to remember and honor those who have passed away. One of the most well-known customs is the wearing of costumes and traditional skeleton masks, or calaca. Making a Day of the Dead mask is a fun way to teach your child about this important event.
