Christmas coloring pages and printables

The holidays are all about spending quality time with family. The days are great for sledding and building snowmen, while the evenings are perfect for quiet time together sipping hot chocolate by the fireplace. However, shopping for holiday gifts, cooking for a large group, preparing guest rooms, and decorating for the holidays takes a lot of time and energy.

A little DIY help can go a long way toward easing that holiday stress. Entertain the kids with Christmas coloring pages, or turn a Christmas word scramble into a game for the whole family. Spruce up your presents with printable gift tags or organize your holiday entertaining with place cards. It all adds up to you spending less time prepping for the holidays and more time with loved ones. These will add a homey feeling to your holiday spread and keep the rest of the family engaged while you get things done around the house.

Last but not least — and most exciting for the kids — are these fun Christmas coloring pages. They make for a great indoor activity when the weather outside is a tad too frightful (or when you need to sneak away to help Santa wrap presents). Kids can sit by the fire while coloring Santa Claus, reindeer, snowmen, and carolers. Or, the whole family can join in on the fun word scramble. See who can find words like “reindeer” and “stocking” the fastest. Perhaps the winner gets to open a present early…
