Start this jolly holiday season with fun free Christmas coloring pages. 'Tis the season for lots of excitement and joy for both young and old.
Anticipation starts to build early as Christmas approaches. Some are making lists, feasting on cookies and milk, picking out the right tree, wrapping presents (the ones that Santa doesn't bring), decorating, listening for reindeer bells and the most fun of all, trying to catch a glimpse of Santa. This certainly is lots of fun and a great way to entertain children as we countdown the days till Christmas by giving them fun interactive Christmas coloring pages.
Our goal is to bring you quality coloring pages that children love to color. You will find everything from easy to more challenging so that there is something for all ages.
Have children use crayons, markers, colored pencils, water color and any other medium to create their masterpieces. If you want to save as a keepsake, have them write their name and year. It's great to look at these as the years pass and they grow right before your own eyes.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all, Enjoy!

Elf-On-A-Shelf has become quite the phenomenon. It started over 5 years ago when these adorable elves started appearing. This special scout elf is sent from the North Pole to help Santa on his naughty or nice list. When a family adopts an elf and gives it a name, the elf receives its Christmas magic and can fly back to the North Pole each night to tell Santa Claus about all the day's adventures.
Both my daughters actually adopted their own elf the very first year they started appearing and we had fun watching all the mischievous fun their elves had. I remember when they first came to our house some weeks before Christmas and we found our Christmas tree wrapped in bathroom paper with one elf inside the tree and the other hiding in the toilet paper roll. We all had a great laugh and wondered what else they might do while they were here.
I must admit that we were not aware of the "no-touch" rule which says that you can not touch the elf or they lose their magic. My girls played with them and slept with them and they even stayed till the following summer (because my younger daughter could not bare to part with her elf) with the approval of Santa Claus.
Elf on a shelf is certainly popular and these last couple of years these elves have been appearing in the funniest ways. Bring Elf on a shelf to your home this christmas with these fun coloring pages, printables games and crafts.
These elves are cute but they are pricey too, especially if you have more than one child. Make your own easy elf on a shelf here. It's not exactly like the real one but work well especially for the little ones.

Entertain kids while their waiting for the big day with this free printable Santa Claus mask. To make a DIY sled, grab a large cardboard box and cut the top lid off, tape some jingle bells to the box, open 2 holes on the box and loop some ribbon or string throughout the holes. Leave the string long enough so that there is some space between the child and the box, then tie the ribbon around child's waist. To make easy and budget friendly reindeers, get 2 long branches and wrap some jingle bells around the branches and for a finale use brown chenille stems (pipe cleaners) and shape it around the end of the twig or branch to make it look like deer antlers and Voila! You have 2 branch reindeers!
Make some pretend presents for them to deliver (to other family members, the cat, the dog, pretend friends, toy animals like their favorite dinosaur, stuffed animals and toy characters like Spiderman, etc.). You can also make mini presents for everyone on the list. For example, if they are going to deliver to Spiderman and you happen to have some left over spider web from halloween, you can roll some of it up into a soft ball and tie a ribbon around it, add a name tag and you just made yourself a great Spiderman present.
If you want to be extra clever, tie ribbons around small stacks of laundry and have them deliver it to their room, this way you get 2 jobs done at once.
