This Sunday my girls and I made a day of painting calaveras. Using brown postal wrapping paper, we spread out and went to work. While my girls have not really experienced death, except for my oldest who lost a great-grandma when she was 3, they have no reference to that kind of loss. But, I found it to be a great opportunity to discuss loosing a loved one. This is not a subject that anyone wants to embark on with their children, nonetheless, it is inevitable that they will experience it. I want them to know it is important to talk about it and grieve and find comfort in remembering.
|And since we just celebrated Halloween, I thought I'd share a few photos of the night!|
I was a little bummed, my witch hat went to work with my husband, who is a fireman. So I had to be a hatless witch, hence the spider web to help out with the witchy look!
