Day of the Dead Mask Printable

Hi everyone! Today, I’m going to share with a very easy Day of the Dead Mask, for all ages!

Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday observed around the world. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Isn’t that beautiful? The bright and bold colors are stunning and make the perfect backdrop for a beautiful party.

I am fairly new to the Day of the Dead. I don’t remember hearing anything about it in Texas, but here in Arizona, there are already cute sections in stores with anything you would need for your own party. A few of my favorite Arizona bloggers and I got together to create party ideas and tutorials just for you! We stopped by The Simple Farm and used their amazing set up for our kid friendly DIY Day of the Dead Party.

Talk to the kids about symmetry. We looked up a few pictures on my phone and talked about how the masks were the same on both sides – as if you could fold the mask in half, right down the middle, and it would be the same on both sides.

I started with the eyes. Whatever I did to one eye, I did to the other eye.

It was so fun to see what they were coming up with!
