Christmas is wonderful, and for all kinds of reasons! From those coveted family get-togethers to those cozy nights of classical Christmas movie watching, Christmas is the time of year that both kids and adults look forward to, impatiently.
I have been working diligently sifting through tons of Christmas resources, trying out different apps and tools, and exploring new resources. The purpose is to create a resource section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning where parents, teachers, and students can access educational resources to use during the Christmas season. I have so far covered Santa tracking apps, Christmas backgrounds and wallpapers, Google Santa Tracker, secret Santa generators, and Santa apps.
In today’s post, I share with you some of the best places where you can access free Christmas printables and coloring pages to use with kids as well as adults. All you need is to get some crayons, sharpen pencils, set up the activity table and let kids unleash their creative genes as they color a wide variety of Christmas-themed drawings and pictures including those depicting Santa Claus, Christmas ornaments, Christmas trees, reindeers. wreaths, bells, candies, and many more.
