Inside: Ideas for arts and craft projects and classroom decorations that preschool children can make to celebrate Mexican Day of the Dead / Día de Muertos.

As a Mexican preschool teacher working in the UK, I find it very important to share my culture with our children because they are developing in a global society and we can all benefit from more exposure to different cultures and traditions than the ones we experience at home.

This will not only bring creativity to their ideas as they grow up but also can help to develop a sense of diverse community and tolerance that is much needed in our modern world.

10 Easy Day of The Dead Crafts for Kids

I’ve put together this list of simple craft projects that young children can make to celebrate Mexican Día de Muertos this November (or end of October, if you want to pair it up with Halloween celebrations).

I hope you and your kids enjoy them!

1. Paper Plate Day of The Dead Sugar Skulls

These adorable Día de Muertos Skulls come with a free printable template of the eyes for the sugar skull that you can easily cut and paste into a paper plate to then decorate with your favourite craft materials.

Find the printable and step by step tutorial by yours truly here in Box of Ideas.

2. Sugar Skull Black Glue Art Project

If you haven’t used black glue with your children, what better time to do it than around Halloween or Day of the Dead celebrations? You can either buy it on Amazon or make your own following the tutorial over I Heart Crafty Things.

3. Neon Day of the Dead Mask

Neon Day of The Dead Mask By Arty Crafty Kids

These skulls use neon pens to get that “glowy” effect that I bet your craftiest kids will go nuts for. If you run out of ideas for a halloween costume you can always let the kids do your make-up with these pens. Cyber-Punk Preschool Teacher Costume? Anybody? …ok.

Check out the tutorial for this mask over Arty Crafty Kids.

4. Sugar Skulls Rocks Using Puffy Paint

Sugar Skulls Rocks Using Puffy Paint by Color Made Me Happy

 

These calorie-free sugar skulls look great indoors and outdoors. The fact that you decorate them using puffy paint makes them a complete sensory experience that continues after the paint is dry. Don’t you also get tiny bits of joy when you feel dry puffy paint with your fingers? Ooooh yeah.

See the tutorial over Color Made Happy.

🌺💀 Frida opened her eyes. The face she saw was not that of the woman she had seen every morning since she placed that mirror above her bed so many years ago. Instead she saw a pale skeleton staring back at her. -“Wait a second…” She thought -“AM I…PLAIN?”. She wasn’t having it. She jumped out of the mattres and felt a bunch of cempasuchil flower’s petals under her foot. It was probably Diego who scattered them there. Frida hopped with her only leg along the petals path and she arrived to her beloved art studio. The artist fiercely grabbed a paintbrush and started to work her magic on her new skeletal body. A moon later, Kahlo hopped back to her bed, looked at her reflection and said: -“Much better”. . 🌺💀 Paper Frida Kahlo made by teacher @rodrigomacias using the printable puppet template by @RedTedArt

The best thing about this paper puppet is that each child can put it together as crazy as they want. The template includes print-ready accesories such as hair flowers and a sombrero to make unique calaveras.

In the picture above you can see the skull puppet I made which is supposed to look like one of my favourite Mexican artists who happens to be dead. Can you guess who it is?

7. DIY Day of the Dead Bookmarks

A good way to encourage children to read more is to let them make their own bookmars. Even if the book they are reading doesn’t belong to their household, seeing their own bookmarks in the books can give the kids a sense of ownership to keep reading.

Follow the tutorial to make these Day of the dead themed bookmarks over Red Ted Art.

8. Sugar Skull Craft – Painted Flower Pots

Sugar Skulls Painted Flower Pots by Color Made Happy

Day of the Dead-ify a bunch of tiny flower pots to decorate your Día de Muertos shrine. If you don’t want to use plants because children give you enough beings to keep alive, you can also put a small veladora or tea light.

See the step-by-step instructions at Color Made Happy.

9. Day of the Dead: Stone Skulls

Day of the Dead: Stone Skulls by Red Ted Art

If your kids can’t find smooth rocks lying around, you can get a bag from Amazon. Wait a minute… are there any preschool teachers with enough extra budget to buy ROCKS?

Check out the tutorial on Red Ted Art.

10. Glow in the Dark Pumpkins

Glow in the Dark Pumpkins by Color Made Happy

If you have a bilingual classroom, why not make a multicultural craft that involves Halloween AND Dia de Muertos in the same project? These skull-looking pumpkins are a great way to marry both holidays in the same craft.

See the step-by-step instructions at Color Made Happy.

(Video) Crafting Animals at High Speed

Here’s a video of my super-speedy hands making the examples for this game:

Instructions:

1. Download the Free Printable from the link at the bottom of this page (it comes in English and Spanish)

2. Complete each animal in a crafty way by playing with your creativity and any random materials that you find around.

Unleash your creativity!

Experiment with odd materials that don’t look like art supplies at all. That brings a richer experience for the player because it gives more satisfaction to them knowing they “discovered” a new way of using something. Who doesn’t love that feeling?

Idea twists:

Recycling Mode: Play an eco-friendly version of this game by using mostly materials that would otherwise be thrown away (clean trash).

🐦💬 Everyone kept saying: “YOU WILL NEVER GET WINGS!” And for a long sad time, I believed them 😣 then one day it finally came to me… After binge-listening to success stories about feather-less birds that made it (like the naked bird you see if you SWIPE LEFT), I knew I had to find my own kind of wings no matter how unusual or “un-bird likely” they were. So I went into the recycling bin, I grabbed an old paper bag, cut it, painted it blue like my favourite kind of worms and LOOK AT ME NOW! I am the birdest bird in the bird land 💙😎 . . Has anyone ever told you that you are not good enough? What have you done about it? Comment to inspire others! . . . PS: I made this bird for @bestideasforkids

Colors and Creativity: A Preschool Game Idea to Practice Color Names in Any Language

Colors and Creativity: A Preschool Game Idea to Practice Color Names in Any Language - Free printables of colour names in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and a BLANK version to add more languages.

Inside: Preschool game where the children come up with ideas of round-shaped things that have a specific color. Includes free color names template in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.

If you are teaching names of colors to kids (in any language) you should try this idea.

Your kids will use their creativity to come up with things that include a circle shape as a base and have a specific color.

Video:

Watch and share this video on Facebook.

 

The colors included are: red, blue, green, yellow, pink, orange, purple, gray, black, brown and white.

To keep it multilingual, the PDF is available in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish as well as a BLANK version so you can add the names of the colors yourself in any other language(s).

Need more languages? Add them to the BLANK version.

 

2. Using the circle shape as a base, the kids should come up with a drawing of something that is mainly of the color named at the top of each page. This will help to exercise their creativity as well as their color identification skills.

 

3. Now it’s time to add color with crayons, paint, use it as a playdough mat, or do whatever the kids decide with whatever materials are available to them.

Idea twist:

  • Practice with many combinations of shapes and colors. Use a black marker to draw different non-circle shapes that the kids can use as a base for their designs. Can you think of something yellow and triangular that is not an Angry Bird? ?

DIY Addition Machine – A fun way to learn addition

A nice teacher from Mexico sent me this video where he used the Animal Numbers to make an “addition Machine” (Máquina de sumar, in Spanish).

He used two painted toilet rolls and taped them to a shoe box.

Above each of the toilet rolls he placed one of the free number flash-cards to indicate how many pom-pons the student should introduce. Then the child only needs to count the total number of pom-pons in the box to know the answer.

Another teacher from a Facebook group commented that the machine could be improved by placing a “+” symbol between the flash-cards.


If you make anything with this free numbers printable, please consider sending me your video to be featured in my Facebook Page so other teachers can get inspired by your idea.

Upper / Lower Case Vowels Matching Games (free printable included)

Preschool level kids that speak either English, Spanish or French can use these as a fun learning practice for upper and lower case alphabet vowels. If your kid is bilingual, then you might find them ultra useful :) by kids activities designer Rodrigo Macias

<<

Fun alphabet matching game ideas to teach uppercase and lowercase vowels to preschool level kids that speak either English, Spanish, French or Italian.

Resources

Directions

01. Print a copy of printable A.

02. Cut the cards out of the page and then cut each in half.

03. Play matching those pics, which can be done in different ways depending on each child’s likes and skills, you can either:

  • Hide all the pieces around the room to make it a scavenger hunt / puzzle game.
  • Scramble all the pictures on the floor/table and let the kid find their own way to match them.
  • Put either the uppercase or lowercase parts in the right order (a-e-i-o-u) and let the kid find their match.

Game twists

  • Glue a magnet in the back of their designs so they can play on a metallic surface like the fridge.
  • Mount the pictures on cardboard (or print on thicker paper) and use them to play an alternative version of the classic memory game, where instead of looking to match two pictures of the same kind, they have to find the letter’s uppercase/lowercase match.

DIY ESL Activity: Memory sounds game of English Vowels for Spanish speaking kids

An ESL sounds memory game to practice English vowel names for spanish-speaking kids. By kids activities designer Rodrigo Macias

<<

An ESL sounds memory game to practice English vowel names for spanish-speaking kids.

Resources

Directions

01. Print 2 copies of the English vowel names printable on thick paper (or print on thin paper and mount it on something thicker like cereal box cardboard).

02. Cut out the 10 vowel squares out of your 2 copies of printable A.

03. Play memory as usual ? (how?), and every time a player flips a card, all players must say out loud the English name of the vowel on the card (use a funny “cartooney” voice to make it more memorable).

Idea twists

  • Extend the life of your memory squares by laminating them or covering them with thick clear tape.
  • To make the game a bit more challenging, print a third copy of the free printable and make the goal of the game to find 3 matches of each vowel instead of only 2.
