Last Updated: November 3, 2023

We have just updated the newest and most unique Day Of The Dead coloring pages to celebrate the festive atmosphere of Mexico. By definition, this celebration is a bit gruesome because it’s all skulls and bones, but all the colors and flowers in our coloring pages are quite attractive. In addition, in principle, the Day of the Dead, although a sad event, is also something special to remember those who have passed away and have gone before us. Remember that our coloring pages are free to download, print, and share as many as you like.

On this theme, we’ve created coloring pages featuring many traditional Day of the Dead symbols, such as sugar skulls, flower crowns, mariachi skeletons, and graveyard scenes. Kids can use any of their favorite colors for the pages, but traditional Day of the Dead colors include bright, vibrant colors like orange, yellow, purple, and blue.
