25 Brand New Sugar Skull Coloring Pages – Free to Print and Color
The first image we have in this collection of free sugar skull coloring sheets for kids has a skull with a prominent floral theme to it.
A large rose is on the forehead of the skull, so I think it would look great to add in some bright and beautiful reds to this image.
How will you color in this first sugar skull coloring page?
This next sugar skull coloring printable has more great details for you to color in. I think that it would look great if you used as many of your favorite bright colors as you can fit into this picture.
Will you use primarily warm or cool colors? You could even do a mixture of both, and we can’t wait to see what you choose!
There’s another strong floral theme in this sugar skull coloring page.
For that reason, I would use some more pretty yellows, reds and then some greens to give this sugar skull even more of a flowery look to it.
Do you think that you will use colors like these or maybe use some other colors that you love?
We have a sugar skull that seems to be giving off a loving feeling judging by the hearts in the eyes.
Because of this theme of love, I would use some gorgeous rich reds and purples as the main colors of this skull.
I think that it would also look great to incorporate other mediums like paint and colored pens to make the colors pop!
There’s slightly less detail to this next sugar skull coloring sheet.
We’ve had a few images that lent themselves well to brighter and more intense colors for the previous images, but for this one it could be a nice change to use cooler, more muted colors.
For example, I would use blues and greens as the primary colors for this one.
What color scheme will you give this image?
We have a sugar skull with a giant diamond on the forehead for this sugar skull printable. This element makes me think that it would work for either a vibrant yellow or a cooler blue for this image.
I think that either of those colors would really suit the theme of the diamond, but what colors came to mind for you?
I love the design of this sugar skull coloring page. There are a lot of twisty lines along with more flower themes on this one, so I think that this one would especially look great with some colored pens to go over the lines for some bright splashes of color.
I would also use some pretty reds, pinks and purples to go with the floral aspect of this sugar skull.
There are so many small and intricate details to the design of this skull coloring sheet! For smaller details to color in, it’s usually a good idea to go with a medium that will let you have a lot of control over your coloring.
For that reason, I would again suggest some colored pens, pencils or markers for this image if you have any.
We have another sugar skull with a mixture of hearts and flowers for this sugar skull coloring printable.
Hearts always make me think that red would be the best color, but that doesn’t mean you should feel forced to use that color!
Your creativity should run free when coloring, so I can’t wait to see what colors you decide on for this picture.
There’s a sugar skull that’s a bit different from the previous sugar skull coloring pages we’ve had so far. This one has a sombrero and has a large mustache.
For this Mexican inspired sugar skull, I would use some lovely bright yellows, oranges and greens to really go with the theme that this image is giving off.
It’s time for some flaming hot coloring fun in this fiery sugar skull coloring sheet!
There are flames in the eyes of this skull, so I think that it would look really great to use some acrylic paints or colored pens on this one.
Using that medium with bright reds and oranges would make the fiery heat leap off the page once you’re finished!
We have another image honoring love for this free sugar skull printable.
There are big hearts in the eyes of this skull, and I think that I would use a bright, neon pink colored pen for the hearts in the eyes. That would really add a fun and vibrant element to this picture!
What colors and mediums do you think that you will use for this one?
The pattern in the eyes of this next sugar skull coloring page makes me think of a four-leaf clover shape.
Combined with the heart on the forehead, I think that I would use mostly green and red for this picture.
Green and red are complementary colors, so that would make this skull especially appealing!
There are keyhole patterns in the eyes of this next sugar skull. Those shapes make me think of a darker yellow for this picture.
I also think it would look really cool to use a gold glitter pen for at least that part of the picture for an extra element to this image. What mediums or crafts will you use for this sugar skull coloring sheet?
We have another slightly less detailed image for this sugar skull printable. I think that it could look really pretty to use some nice watercolor paints for this picture if you have some.

You could stick on some sequins, beads or glitter to add some extra dimension to this pretty sugar skull.
We have another mustachioed sugar skull for you to color in for this page. This skull has some cobwebs at the top, and for that reason I get a bit of a Halloween vibe from this sugar skull.
I would use some darker colors for this one to fit that theme. The main colors I would want to use would be darker purples, blues and greens.
Do you also get a dark Halloween feeling from this skull or will you use brighter colors?

There are more amazing details in this sugar skull coloring page. For this one, I would again suggest using a medium that lets you have a lot of control.
