DIY: Day of the Dead Mask – Disney Coco Inspired

Did you see Disney’s Coco? It is coming out on Blu-Ray on February 27th. I’m sharing a fun and simple craft below, along with the printable so you can download it yourself.

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.


What you will need:

  • a print out of the mask
  • crayons
  • scissors

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!
