Coloring isn’t just busy work, it’s also great for developing skills such as:

  • Fine motor skills
  • Imagination
  • Creativity
  • Visual motor skills
  • Independence

Plus kids can begin to experiment with colors, patterns, symmetrical designs and more. 

And don’t forget to allow your child to color these coloring pages in anyway they’d like. This means they don’t HAVE to stay inside the lines. They don’t have to color the elves in traditional Christmas colors. They can color the Christmas trees red and the candy canes orange if they wish. Let them color and create however they desire!
