The Christmas season is coming. If your kids are anything like mine that means it’s a “so exciting it almost hurts” kind of season. Use these free printable Christmas coloring pages as a way to decompress, a way to brainstorm for future art projects, or as a creative filler for those few empty minutes at the end of class!
Bye bye blank pages…
An blank page can be overwhelming for an artist of any age.
That’s what I love about these sketchbook prompts. These free printable Christmas coloring pages are part coloring book page and part sketchbook prompt. They give a kid ( or an adult) a place to start, or something to build on and supply a pressure free way to get the doodles out!
The benefits of doodling…
Doodling or drawing is a calming activity. It brings focus and relaxation to a frazzled mind. It’s been proven that doodling can ease tension and anxiety. And let’s be honest here. As amazing and full of memories as the holidays are, they can also get a little manic.
Rushing from one thing to the next in the spirit of “making memories” has been known to happen at our house.
Coming together to “make” doesn’t have to be labor intensive. It can be as easy as sitting down to doodle together on these free printable Christmas coloring pages.
Beyond these Christmas coloring sheets….
Some kids will love an art project that’s free form with little to no instruction. The blank page is their friend because they know what they want to make and how to get there.
Some kids prefer a project with a specific set of instructions and a tangible end goal in mind. Follow steps A, B, and C and you will get product D. They like structure.
Offer a variety of art invitations with a variety of levels of structure.
Meet your kids where they are at.
