Free Printable Zodiac And Day of The Dead Coloring Pages
Lots of printable coloring pages try to list every topic under the sun. So it’s easy to get lost in a sea of pages you aren’t even interested in. Instead of listing twenty or thirty pages to fill out this list, I’ve limited it to those that are the most interesting or unique.
I’ve always had an interest in astrology and was happy to find these printable zodiac and astrology coloring pages. Young or old, child or adult, you’ll find something you like.
Plus, these zodiac coloring pages are the perfect visual aid for teaching others about astrology. And pretty darn good at keeping the little ones busy coloring too. There are lots of sites to choose from, but these are some of my (and my grandchildren’s) favorites.
If you’re running low on ink or toner after printing a bunch of these, check out this site for printing supplies. They have really prices and a heck of a guarantee – one full year. Plus they have coupons to save you even more.
How this site came up with it’s name is a mystery to me. There’s lots of information on astrology so it’s easy to spend a bunch of time here. You’ll find enough detail in the pictures to make them interesting to any age group.
I was amazed at the variety of designs on this site. From simple to complex and everything in between. In addition, you’ll find a list of other pages worth checking out at the bottom of the main page.

Day of The Dead
I didn’t know much about this holiday until I came across the incredible artwork on these pages. The day of the dead is a two day holiday celebrated in many parts of the world. It honors the memory of those who have left this world.

As I began scrolling down this page I thought the designs were going to be really simple. But I was wrong. In fact, some of my favorites are on this site. Definitely worth looking into.
The first thing I noticed about this page was the hard to find designs. They definitely took a good idea and ran with it. You’ll find some really cool coloring pages here.
There are some very interesting sugar skull designs on this page. In fact, along with a few images of ladies, that’s what you’ll find the most of here.

These are perfect for the youngster who sang the song and watched the baby shark videos. Did you know the YouTube video for “Baby Shark” is one of the most viewed videos? There have been over 7 billion views since it was uploaded there. Not bad for a one minute and twenty one second song. And it’s in the public domain to boot!
I have yet to meet someone who didn’t like emoji’s. Especially the designs you’ll find here. By the way, emoji’s were first used on Japanese mobile phones. The year was 1997. They weren’t as detailed as what we have today though. The technology to support that wasn’t available back then.
If you’re old enough to remember the Charlie Brown Halloween Specials this will be a trip down memory lane.
Did you know this about the Peanuts comic strip?
- Although we know Charlie Brown had parents, we never get to meet them or any other adults in the comic strip. His dad is a barber and his mother is a homemaker.
- Snoopy had four brothers and one sister. The brothers were named Spike, Olaf, Marbles and Andy. His sister’s name was Belle.
- Remember the TV specials and the school teacher with the funny sounding voice? Her name was Miss Othmar. They used a trombone to make that funny sounding noise we call her voice.
- Woodstock, the yellow bird that is Snoopy’s friend, was first seen in 1966. But he didn’t get a name until some time in 1970. It’s rumored he was named after the music festival of the same name.
While the kids are busy coloring all those great images of Mickey, here’s a bit of trivia for the adults. If you can honestly say “I knew that” to at least five of the statements below you’re a true Mickey Mouse super fan.
- Mickey has the honor of being the first cartoon character to speak on film. His first words were “Hot Dogs.”
- Walt Disney used to lend his voice to Mickey Mouse until 1946. No one seems to know why he stopped. Some think he just got too busy at the studio and didn’t have the time anymore.
- Mickey’s birthday is November 18th, 1928. Minnie Mouse’s birthday is November 18th too. I’m not sure of the year. Pretty sweet setup for Mickey though. It’s not like he could forget Minnie’s birthday, is it?
- Mickey and Minnie Mouse are married. Although they were never married on film, Disney himself decided they were, and that’s the way it’s stayed for all these years. And as far as I know, he never revealed the date of their anniversary.
- Who was the first cartoon character to earn a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? If you said Mickey Mouse, you’re right! The big day just happened to be on one of his birthdays, November 18, 1978.
- Mickey was nominated for (and won) an Oscar for his part in the film “Lend A Paw.” Amazingly, he was nominated nine other times as well.
- Mickey released a music album in 1978. It went double platinum. Not bad for a cartoon character. What do you think he spends the royalties on?
- You’re a real fan if you can answer this next question. What’s Mickey Mouse’s middle name? Give up? It’s Theodore. I have to admit, that one got me too.
If you’re as fascinated with dragons as I am, you won’t know which image to print first. Now that’s the kind of problem I like.
