What is Cinco de Mayo?

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexico’s victory over France in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Though much of Mexico actually does not celebrate this holiday, it has become quite popular in America. Celebrating this Mexican holiday has become a fun way for Mexican-Americans to celebrate their heritage!

Many schools hold class parties to acknowledge this holiday and many communities hold celebrations too! It’s a day filled with dance, song, and lots of good food! It’s DEFINITELY a good excuse to a taco…or two!

In total, there are are 7 free Cinco de Mayo coloring pages in this pdf file download. Each fun picture uses five or six different colors making it perfect for color identification. I think my favorite part about this Cinco de Mayo color by number pdf is that there are different themes to each worksheet!

There’s one adorable page with the cutest pinata wearing a party hat! Talk about a celebration! There’s also a page with a guitar and sombrero, the most adorable smiling cactus, a happy jalapeño wearing a sombrero, the words “Cinco de Mayo” in bubble letters, and a pair of maraca. Each one has a color code to follow too!

What are Cinco de Mayo Colors?

Many colors used during Cinco de Mayo are taken from the Mexico flag — red, white and green. However, a themed color combination is not a requirement. In fact, much of Mexican heritage is FILLED with tons of different colors. Mexican folk dancers wear dresses filled with different bright and cheerful colors, so these code coloring pages are also full of exciting colors.

  • If you are completing these pages with younger children, color in the little crayons that list the colors on each page. This will help their color identification and keep their little brains from getting frustrated!
