Dia de los Muertos Preschool Learning Activities & Coco Family Movie Night

I love using holidays for fun preschool themes.  You can find November's Holiday calendar here-there are 16 fun holidays that your children will love to celebrate!  My older kids were also excited about this theme and they love to join in on themes.  This one can easily be adapted for different age groups.

Dia de los Muertos, also known as The Day of the Dead, is a holiday I didn't know much about and can inspire so much fun and learning.  My kids actually knew more about it due to the movie Coco so they were pretty excited when they saw it on our holiday calendar.  When they are excited about one we try to do at least a little something.  

Before you start I think it's import for kids to understand the meaning behind this holiday.  It's not one that I knew much about and I love learning with my kids about different cultures and places.  (We are working on an around the world theme that we will start posting soon)  Here's a great resource for some kid friendly facts. 

To go with this theme we are going to do a couple math pages from this awesome free resource (if you don't have a teacher pay teacher account I highly recommend it!  There are so many great resources and many are free.)

I also created a fun matching game and coloring page. You can download the here. For the matching game print 2 on cardstock.  It's a great way to work on color recognition.

Finish your day with a movie night and watch Disney's Coco or Elena of Avalor has a cute episode if you can find it.
