Easy and Fun Day of the Dead Craft Ideas With Cricut

The Mexican Day of the Dead (Día de Los Muertos) is celebrated on November 1st and has become a popular holiday in other parts of the world.  This holiday gives families a way to demonstrate love and respect for family members that are no longer with us.

We love learning about other traditions and cultures, and the Day of the Dead has become a  huge deal in our home now. I love all the crafts surrounding this holiday, the bright colors and Calaveras (sugar skulls) used to decorate homes and altars.

And besides, doing projects together with my kids gives us the perfect opportunity  to start conversations about death in a new light while teaching them more about their Hispanic heritage. So, if you are planning to celebrate Dia de Los Muertos, here are some great Day of the Dead Craft Ideas With Cricut I think you are going to love.
