Mexican Crafts:

Day of the Dead Skull Coloring Page

A free, printable coloring page for Halloween, Aztec or Mexican Crafts. This is a highly decorated Day of the Dead (Calaca or Calaveras) skull.

If you have a look at Mexican or Aztec decorated Death Heads or Masks you will find some fantastically colorful and often surreal ideas: a ‘Catrina’ skeleton wearing a huge flowery hat, for example!

This Halloween Day of the Dead coloring sheet is detailed enough to look good just colored in, but there’s still room for you to add even more brightly colored patterns or weird and wonderful ideas of your own.
