Day of the Dead is one of my favorite holidays. It’s just so colorful and there’s a lot of delicious food, so what’s not to like? We already did sugar skull coloring pages for kids, and for today’s Day of the Dead activity, we are coloring a pretty Sugar Skull zentangle!

Dia de los Muertos activities

Day of the Dead, also called All Souls Day or All Saints Day, is celebrated to remember loved ones who have died, in a respectful and joyful way. It’s a celebration to think and talk about them so they are always near our hearts.

There are many ways to enjoy Dia de los Muertos. One of my favorite Dia de los Muertos activities, besides eating pan de muerto, are doing day of the dead worksheets, watercolor cards, color pencil illustrations, and just any kind of artwork to represent how colorful this celebration is.

For this day of the dead printable, we are coloring a sugar skull zentangle!

If you are not familiar with zentangles, all you have to know is that they are a fun way to relax by creating beautiful patterns and images, like this zentangle bunny.

Creating your own zentangle art takes time and patience, but until you get enough experience, printable zentangle coloring pages can help you and your little ones get to that place.

That’s why tiger coloring pages are super handy for beginners and kids, as they allow kids to become familiarized with this art by coloring easy coloring pages first.

The possibilities are endless. This trumpet coloring page is one of my favorite ones!
