These color by number Christmas worksheets are a great way to keep kids entertained. These holiday-themed templates can be printed off and completed with a variety of colors, making the activity engaging and educational at the same time!
Don’t you love the wonder that comes from children at Christmas time?
Their excitement to see Santa Claus, tour the Christmas lights, and drink gallons upon gallons of hot chocolate in a single gulp.
And of course there are all the activities and worksheets that they have a renewed eagerness to create (because heaven only knows this is the time of year when they start to struggle with focusing on their schoolwork).
And who can blame them?
There’s so much going on in their lives in the month of December!
This is one of the reasons why I love these Christmas color by number printables. If your children are younger, they are a fun way for them to learn and practice their colors and numbers.
Even older kids and adults will enjoy printing and completing this free printable.
Here are some of our family’s favorite Christmas coloring pages.
Santa’s Coming Coloring Sheet
There’s a cute children’s storybook called “How To Trap Santa” that my children love reading every year.
There’s a mysterious excitement about this jolly fellow that draw children into the magic of Christmas.
In our home, we do focus on how the similarities of Santa and Jesus Christ, so the true meaning and spirit of Christmas is not lost through the excitement and rush of this holiday season.
And this Santa coloring page is one of their favorite activities.
They love coloring the sled all sorts of colors (Santa drove a pink sleigh one year).
You can grab this free Santa coloring page, which you’ll find in this fun Christmas color by number bundle below:
Christmas Tree Coloring Sheets
What are some of the fun family traditions you have with your Christmas tree?
Every year every member of our family is gifted their own Christmas ornament. Usually there is a theme for each person (such as their favorite superhero, television show, or childhood career).
And of course my children love to put all the ornaments on one side of the tree. I think this is how you know you have children in the home. That, and the fact that the majority of the ornaments are on the bottom of the Christmas tree.
These Christmas tree coloring pages are each unique and fun. Your children can design their own tree, help a snowman decorate his tree, or help color a little boy trying to place the star on top of his tree.
Ideas For The Christmas Coloring Sheets
From one mom to another I know the last thing you want is for paper to be scattered throughout your house.
You love the idea of the fun coloring pages and activities, but the idea of trying to toss their artwork or find it stuck behind the bookshelf three months later might leave you with a pit in your stomach.
Here is a list of ideas to brighten someone’s day after your child has colored their Christmas pages:
- Send coloring pictures to grandparents to brighten their day.
- Cut out the pictures and glue them to the front of a card. You can deliver them to nursing homes, elderly church members, or others who need a pick-me-up.
- Give them to teachers (from your co-op or in the community) as a Christmas gift of appreciation for their hard work and time they spend pouring into your children.
- Give them to your church members as a means of thanking others for their support and encouragement throughout the year.
- Attach them to big brother or big sister’s presents for an extra festive touch (and as a hint as to what is waiting under the tree).
- If you have older children, send them out on a mission of kindness and cut them out and put them in the cards you send to friends to make their day.
Your free Christmas color by number coloring pages will be delivered straight to your inbox. You’ll have to come back and let me know which coloring page was your child’s favorite.
I can’t wait to see which one they enjoy most.
