Day of the Dead / Día de Muertos

At Home Family Fun:

  • Pull out the old family albums and talk about your own ancestors and living relatives.
  • If you are comfortable pulling pictures out of the albums, you could put them up on a small table so you can remember them all day.
  • Fly Kites, in the Guatemalan tradition, of sending notes to deceased loved ones or sharing messages of peace.
  • Looking for a Family Movie Night? We reviewed Coco here. It is streaming on Disney+ or you can rent it from Amazon for $3.99.
  • The MIA is offering a virtual: Día de los Muertos event, featuring artist interviews, performances, videos of celebrations from Minnesota to Ecuador, and other interactive elements.
    The full content will be posted on October 30:

Outing Idea:

Read Aloud:

The Remembering Day / El dia de los muertos (English and Spanish Edition) by Pat Mora. This book looks long, but half the text is in Spanish and half in English, so you really only need to read half.

Dinner Ideas:

Follow any Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe you like, just make sure to use the leftovers and the broth you made yesterday. This is by far my favorite soup!

Dinner Conversation Starter: Tell your kids your favorite stories from your parents, grandparents or even great grandparents’ childhoods. We don’t want to lose these memories.
