Day of the Dead Comparison Activities for Preschoolers with Free Printables

El Día de Muertos or el Día de los Muertos is coming soon. Sunshine, who is usually frightened by Halloween themed skulls, loves those associated with Day of the Dead. They are so beautiful,bright, and cheery.

I couldn't resist using calaveras or skulls in my Day of the Dead Comparison Activities for Preschoolers with Free Printables

You see Sunshine loves to compare things. She has such an eye for detail. There are few people who enjoy search and find challenges like she does. The activities below are some of her favorite ways to compare things.

I hope you enjoy the beautiful calaveras or skulls as much as we do!

Day of the Dead Comparison Activities


Day of the Dead Skull Matching Activity

Day of the Dead Skull Matching Cards

This activity is a simple matching game. A set of cards are included in the cute skull box from our local dollar store.  Another set is placed on the tray. The goal of the activity is to match them together.

My kids enjoy laying them all out like a memory game, but that is not necessary.

Day of the Dead Which Skill is the Same? Activity

Day of the Dead Which Skull is the Same? Activity

In this activity your preschooler will look at the first calavera or skull and then study the other three to decide which one of them is the same as the first.  Once the student identifies the one that's the same, she places a skull on it to mark her answer.

Though I choose to use glittery skulls I found at our local dollar store, you can use pretty much anything to mark your answers.

Day of the Dead Which Skull is Different? Activity

Day of the Dead Which Skull is Different? Activity

In this activity three calaveras or skulls are the same, and one is different. The preschooler identifies the one that is different and then places a skull or other marker on the answer.

I love how fun the skull illustrations are in this activity.  They are so child friendly and enjoyable to study.

Day of the Dead Skull Size Comparison Activity

Day of the Dead Comparing Sizes Activity

This activity has two components to it. There are matching sets of small, medium, and large skulls that preschoolers can put together. They can then sort them by size, using the control word boxes provided.

If the preschooler is unable to follow two steps, there is no need to match up skulls before sorting them by size.

There are several different ways to compare objects, four of which are included in the activities above, but I couldn't resist making yet another in honor of one of Sunshine's favorite activities: puzzles.
