We’ve rounded up five of the very best printable Christmas activities for children. Simply print them out and watch as your little ones have hours of fun — you might even get some Christmas wrapping done!
1) Christmas writing paper
If you have a budding JK Rowling on your hands, this printable is for you! Activity Village’s Christmas story paper is perfect for getting your kids’ creative juices flowing, allowing them to pen their very own Christmas bestseller.
Your kids can take inspiration from the fun colouring image featured on the sheet, or come up with their own unique tale. They could even use it to write their own messages to Santa Claus.
2) Candy cane tree decorations
Is your tree looking a bit bare? Does it lack a personal touch? Get the kids to create these super-cool candy cane tree decorations.
They’re really simple to create and all you’ll need is a printer, some scissors, sticky tape and some ribbon. You’ll find full, easy-to-follow instructions here — remember to supervise the little ones when they’re cutting!
3) Frozen colouring pages
Frozen has captured the hearts of millions of children—and some adults too! For those parents who’ve seen the DVD one too many times, we’ve hunted down the best Frozen colouring pages. They’ll love every minute and you won’t have to hear “Do you want to build a snowman?” for the hundredth time!
There are plenty of designs to choose from here, featuring all of their favourites like Elsa, Anna and Olaf.
4) Nativity scene
It’s easy for kids to get carried away at this time of year, becoming overwhelmed with presents, decorations and lights. Remind them of the true meaning of Christmas with this cool printable nativity scene.
Easy and fun to create, the scene looks really impressive when complete. You can even make a homemade stable from a cardboard box to finish it off.
