Check Out Your 20 Page Christmas Activities Printable Book!
This cover page is adorned with snowflakes, a Christmas tree, and a space for your child to write their name.
Printed out and stapled, this activity book would be a great way to add a budget Christmas gift under the tree.
Slip it into a gift bag as an added gift or use it as a stand-alone gift.
The first puzzle you’ll find is a word search with 12 common Christmas words.
You may know that word searches can be a fun way to help children internalize spelling words.
Kids will have no idea they’re actually learning as they zoom through the rows of letters.
I provided an answer key that you may choose to slip out of the booklet before giving it to your child.
This is just helpful if the child gets stumped and you don’t have time to crack the puzzle yourself.
What Christmas activities booklet could be complete without a letter to Santa Claus?
Encourage your child to write a handful of toys they would most like for Christmas. You can also urge them to write questions they want to now.
“How do you get around the Earth so fast?
“How do you make so many toys every year?”
Maybe Santa will leave the student a reply under the tree 🙂
Uh-oh! Santa has gotten a little turned around.
Can your kid lead Santa through this maze to get to the right Christmas tree?
This is a simple activity, but often very enjoyable for young learners.
Some will recognize right away which one stands out in the row, but you may need to walk through the first couple of rows first.
Coach your child by having them say each item out loud in the row.
Kids often want to decorate the tree, but parents can sometimes overly supervise to make sure ornaments go “where they should.”
This tree is all theirs though!
Give your child crayons, markers, stickers, ribbons, magazine pages to cut up, wrapping paper, glue sticks, pom poms, and/or whatever else you can think of to get their imagination going.
This Christmas activity pack has not one, but two Christmas coloring pages.
The first one is a delectable gingerbread house!
Encourage your child to use unexpected colors and extra designs.
The next coloring page shows a sleigh packed high with a tree and a large gift.
What could be in the box?
Challenge your child to draw another gift on top.
Help the elves get to their favorite Christmas things by tracing each of the lines.
From gifts to gingerbread girls to the North Pole – kids will love connecting these elves.
Symmetry is an important topic for kids to understand – and Christmas time might be the right time to learn it.
If your child is confused about what to do, the best way to teach the concept is to fold the paper in half and trace the tree shape onto the other side of the paper.
Fold and unfold the paper to show your child what symmetry means.
Then let them color and decorate away!
If the previous activity was too easy, older kids might enjoy this challenge!
Can they make the mirror image of the ornament?
This printable Christmas activity book would not be complete without this fun conversation starter.
Use this on road trips or at the dinner table to spark a healthy debate about all things Christmas!
Children and adults will have fun picking one thing or another.
Frosty the Snowman or Rudolph the Reindeer?
Hanging Ornaments or Hanging Stockings?
You might learn something about each other and yourselves!
I provided a couple of classic Christmas worksheets to this packet for a little winter learning fun!
This one brings a touch of math!
Provide some scissors and glue and see if your child can solve the pattern puzzle.
This worksheet brings reading and writing together.
Help your child sound out the Christmas words and write them in the appropriate blanks.
Here is another opportunity to break out the craft supply box!
Encourage your child to draw and color their perfect ornament with all their favorite things.
If you’re feeling very brave, you could even introduce some glitter for a shiny glass-like effect.
Make sure to have some cotton balls on hand for this one!
Kids will love coloring their stockings and adding a little 3D fur lining effect with some cotton balls or colored pom poms.
We’ve all had a Christmas gift that’s too big to even ask for – but wouldn’t it be fun to draw it?!
Let your kid dream away by drawing whatever their imagination brings them.
Racecar, motorcycle, a flying unicorn – the sky’s the limit!
This Christmas activity booklet ends with two dot-to-dot puzzles.
The first one is from 1-34 and will reveal an adorable winter penguin for your child to color.
The last page features a 1-100 dot-to-dot Santa
