Posted on Monday, December 8th, 2014 at 7:00 am
December is one of the busiest months of the entire year. There are parties to attend, presents to shop for (and wrap) and a lot of decorating to do. Despite this flurry of activity, it is possible for your preschooler or kindergartner to be “bored”. Here is where to find some free Christmas coloring sheets that will occupy his time.
Free Christmas Coloring Sheets
Coloring sheets are great for many reasons. One, they let even the smallest kids create some art. Two, they give your child a fun way to practice small motor skills. Three, they help channel off some of the Christmas excitement that kids don’t often know what to do with. In a pinch, they could double as a Christmas card to a grandparent.
Crayola.com has a total of 48 different Christmas related coloring pages. Some are bingo game sheets, others are party invites. The biggest group consists of secular Christmas images and religious Christmas images. Here are a few to start with.
