Day of the Dead Project and Bloesem Kids!

October 13, 2011

I’m happy to share that I will now be a regular craft contributor to the ever-inspiring Bloesem Kids!

My first contribution are suncatchers inspired by the Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. It’s a very simple project for children that involves reusing plastic food packaging, drawing a Halloween design, coloring in with Sharpie markers, and displaying on your glass door or window. Kai really loved this and wanted to make more, but we ran out of plastic to use. Need to buy more Trader Joe’s cookies!

Full instructions can be found on Bloesem Kids and feel free to download my (very rough) template for skulls and such. And make sure to check out lots more neat bKids crafts.

    Jenn, these are great looking. A teacher friend of mine was looking for something for the Day of the Dead — this is perfect.
