These Dia De Los Muertos Free Printables are a super quick and easy project to entertain kiddos and help celebrate “Day of the Dead.” You can just print off the Calavera Printable (Heart & Flower) and have them color it or slide it into a menu holder (I love restaurant supply stores!) for days of coloring fun. Another option would be to shrink the size of the print, color, and string up to make a super easy garland that your kids can help make. I seriously love projects that are like this and so open to interpretation and customization. The sky’s the limit with these Dia De Los Muertos Free Printables!
There are two different designs, one with a flower on the forehead and one with a heart. If you cut out the skull and eyes, add a stick/straw/plastic spoon to the bottom, you’ve got an easy mask! Don’t worry about if your kids don’t want to color inside the lines, still a super fun project for them.
They’re so much fun to color, you may just put them down for a nap and color one yourself! Hope you and your family enjoy these Dia de los Muertos free printables!
UPDATE: I made these four years ago and still use these files for so many other projects. I’ve even seen these Dia de los Muertos free printables pop up on other blogs and websites! Of course, since I posted this, Dia de Los Muertos has become much more mainstream and now you can find calavera-related projects all over the internet. Big box stores are even carrying Day of the Dead items now! I still love these simple calaveras (skulls) and hope you do too!
