This is a great introduction video for the kids. Evn though it starts off morbid, it gets the message across really nicely that the Day of the Dead is in fact a happy day and a true fiesta!
DAY OF THE DEAD ANIMATION
We started out with these paper plate Calaveras, moving up to large paper ones and then tried our hands at a salt dough skull too!
I guess kids like the idea of something scary being cute and of course, the chance to really put their art skills to use!
