Get ready to celebrate the Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) like never before. Inspired by the Mexican and Latin American holidays celebrating dearly departed loved ones—and growing in popularity across North America—this book offers 16 elaborate press-out masks to color, display, and wear. You'll find images of skulls (known as calaveras) sporting smiles, bedecked with gorgeous flowers, and covered in intricate, decorative designs. There are also illustrations of folk art skeletons and sugar skulls, the highly sought-after artisanal sweets and chocolates made specifically for the holiday. Once you're finished coloring, pop out your creations (the pages are perforated), wear, enjoy, and share them with the world. With Day of the Dead Masks to Color, you can relax, unwind, and let your imagination run free as you partake in a joyful centuries-old tradition. Includes elastic headbands for each mask.
Coloring is a favorite pastime of kids everywhere. We all spent hours during our childhoods filling page after page, sometimes with iffy results. Still, we had fun and it fulfilled our creative sides. Somewhere along the way, most of us grow up and feel that coloring books are a thing that we have to set aside as we take on adult responsibilities. I am steadily racking up my stock of adult coloring books. I absolutely love them. They take you straight back to your childhood, at least for me. As a kid I would color for hours with music playing in the background and it is still something I do today. They are much better than the kids coloring books that I play with with my kids. Now they can use their age appropriate books and I an use mine!
The Day of the Dead Masks is one of the coolest adult coloring books I've tried to date. I have always loved these masks and what they symbolize. They are a magical way to honor our loved ones, and creating one yourself gives them even more meaning. This books includes sixteen different masks that you can color and design. It even comes with the strings to tie to them. I am having tons of fun getting these ready for The Day of the Dead when we can honor our ancestors in style.
