I realize that we’re full steam ahead into Holiday Season and talking about Halloween and Día de los Muertos is old hat, but I wasn’t about to miss sharing the Big Side’s awesome day. We were extremely busy, but it was a fun busy. Check out out our craft menu:
Instructions for this craft are on the blog Kids Craft. However, in the interest of time, we didn’t paint our toilet paper rolls. Instead, we encircled them in construction paper–a genius time-saver of an idea!
Skeletons and Skull Masks
No available links on these ones. We’ve had them forever and there’s no original source that we can find.
Spooky Paper Bag Trees
The kids loved these! Find instructions on Pikadilly Charm. We found that gluing a bit of cardstock to the bottom of the brown paper bag helped the trees to stand up. And those little white ghosts you see there are made with tissue paper and tape. Easy peasy.
Pan de Muerto
I was in charge of the “Bread of the Dead” and it was, fun but hard work. I recommend starting early. We had to eat ours on the Monday following Halloween. I used the recipe from Celebrate Day of the Dead.
Hope these ideas inspire you for the next holiday season!
