Day of the Dead Colouring Pages

All NEW! Day of the Dead is a colourful, vibrant celebration in which Mexicans remember and honour their friends and relatives who have passed away. Bright yellow marigolds and other flowers are strung up along with pretty bunting, while sugar skulls - calavera - are decorated and displayed. People dress up in wonderful, gruesome costumes and feast and dance. We have a collection of Day of the Dead colouring pages here which try to capture the exuberance of the celebration!
