Kids get so excited about Christmas. Completing a fun activity is a great way to allow them to focus that enthusiasm for the holiday season into artwork.

Benefits of Using These Holiday Printable Activities
These Christmas activities are simple to use because your kids can sit down, grab the crayons needed to color in the images, and then get started.
While coloring is an activity that often keeps children entertained, there are more things to look forward to when you’re offering these printables to your children.
For example, you’re giving them fine motor skills practice and helping them improve their coloring skills and staying in the lines in a fun way.
Oh, and young children are able to practice color recognition (have give the color name) and number recognition with these free Christmas number coloring pages.
You’re also teaching them the importance of following directions. If your students follow the directions on the printable, beautiful holiday pictures will emerge.
And if your children don’t end up staying in the lines -- that’s okay, too! You may be surprised at the super cool creations.
How to Add to the Fun of the Christmas Color by Number Printables
Easily boost the fun with these Christmas color by number pages by letting your children hang their beautiful artwork up on the walls of your home, classroom, library, or other special event. Such special DIY holiday decor!
Encourage your kids to try some different coloring techniques, like using bold strokes by the outlines and lighter shades towards the middle.
Provide a variety of coloring tools for your kids to try. A few creative ideas are:
- Color pencils
- Watercolor paints
- Tempera paints
- Kwik stix (or other tempera paint sticks)
- Chalk pastels
- Oil pastels
- Dot-a-dot markers
- Pieces of tissue paper (with glue) for a stained glass effect
When your kids are done their color by number activities, have them place a piece of white printer paper on top. Using a pencil, your kids can trace the picture and keep the Christmas coloring fun going!
And it can be so much fun to turn the coloring sheet over and use different colors.
Chat with your kids about what Christmas picture they think will be revealed.
Oh, and don't forget to have your kids write their name and date at the top of the page (wonderful way to record their current handwriting)! Older kids can write in cursive or in block letters.
