Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a three-day observation starting on October 31. Its purpose is to honor those who have passed away. Calaveras (or artful skulls) are a common symbol of the holiday. Learn to make Day of the Dead t-shirts with your kids with our free skull stencil and tutorial.
I’ve had Paris on the brain since I visited the beautiful city way back in 2005. In fact, I’ve recently written a children’s book, about my alter ego, called Secret Agent Josephine in Paris that will be released soon. So when it came time to think up some costumes for this Halloween, my mind went to all things French. Bien sûr!
