Dia de los Muertos
Wednesday, November 3
Hola Amigos! Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a Hispanic tradition that celebrates loved ones who have passed. At Pretend City, we are celebrating Dia de los Muertos with vibrant, educational activities for little ones. Bring a photo of your loved one to add to our special Altar and partake in the celebration!
Purpose Behind the Play: Social-emotional development, number concept development, literacy and language development, and communication.
- Smart Art (Times Vary): Colorful skulls are a symbol of Dia de los Muertos. Stop by the Art Studio to explore sugar cubes and watercolor, along with sugar skull molds and sensory materials!
- Sensational Storytime: Dia de los Muertos is a time to remember loved ones who have passed on from this life. Join us for this short story that introduces the traditions of this celebration and how we can honor our deceased loved ones. After the story, children will make their very own marigold to take home.
