One of our favorite times of the year at SpanglishBaby is here: Day of the Dead/Día de Muertos.

We love embracing it because of the deep traditions, symbolism and colors it brings to our bicultural lives. It´s an especially fun time of the year to create original crafts and activities with our kids.

This is our third year celebrating this special occasion with you. If you´re looking  for information on what Día de Muertos is and how to celebrate, then check out these posts:

We want the SpanglishBaby niños y niñas to have some fun with us and help you win one of three prizes in our Design Your Own Calaverita and Win! Contest:

Grand Prize: $100 Walmart Giftcard,  a Celebrate Day of the Dead Party Planner E-book.

Two runners up will each win: $25 Walmart gift cards, plus a Celebrate Day of the Dead Party Planner E-book.

We really want to have fun with this one, so we´ve created a Facebook contest.

To enter, download and print this adorable Calaverita that our amiga at Viva Greetings has designed exclusively for us.

Give it to your kid(s) and let them get creative and have fun with it. They can paint, color, glitter and sparkle-it, cut and paste to it, whatever they like!

Take a picture of their creation, or scan it, and then go to our Facebook Photo Contest page here to upload.

Submit your Calavera between today, October 17 through October 23.   As soon as voting starts on October 24 make sure you to let all your friends know to vote for your kid´s calaverita. They can vote once per day until October 30.

A huge Gracias to Carla from Viva Greetings for creating the calavera design for us. We´re so excited we can now find her awesome cards and designs at Target! Check out the Viva Greetings Facebook page for details and fun cositas!
