Benefits of Dia De Los Muertos Coloring Pages
The best part about having coloring sheets for the kids is that it gives them the chance to work on their fine motor skills while also being able to communicate with them about this wonderful day of celebration. It’s often looked at as if it’s Halloween here in the states but it is celebrated differently in other cultures.

Equipment Needed / Helpful Tools
- Printer: This one is a great budget printer. If you’re willing to spend just a little more though, this is a better option. And if you’re looking for an all-in-one home office machine, this one does it all, has high reviews and includes 2 years of ink.
- Printer paper or cardstock: If you’re printing for one-time, quick use, print on regular printer paper. If you need the printout to hold up to being handled often or if you plan to laminate it to use it multiple times, choose cardstock.
- Laminator: Laminating your printable is an inexpensive way to use it multiple times. Just use dry erase markers and wipe off when you’re done so you can use it again! Alternately, you can cover the printable with clear contact paper to achieve the same thing.
