Free Coloring Page for Día de los Muertos

So we've been brainstorming around here to come up with more activities that center around Día de los Muertos, and one of the things I came up with was this little page of calaveras for my kids to color and decorate.

I created a simple template and printed it off on some heavy cardstock for my kids. I was really tickled with the way my daughter decorated them, giving each one a particular profession or theme. I think she came up with the idea based on one of her favorite books, Calavera Abecedario by Jeanette Winter. Afterwards, she cut them out and glued them to the end of a craft stick and had her own little calavera puppets.

She had so much fun with it that I decided to share the simple template with all of you. So if you'd like to download your own free copy, just click here, or look in my sidebar under "Free Downloads".


Con mucho cariño...
