Christmas Colouring Pages
Colouring can be a brilliant activity for relaxation and even mindfulness. It can also help children to develop their fine motor and co-ordination, as well as their understanding of colour, shape, and pattern.
Seasonal colouring pages can be found online. Check out Pinterest for loads of printable options. You can also buy fairly cheap colouring books from many shops and supermarkets.
I recommend getting yourself a good selection of felt-pens, colouring pencils, and/or crayons so that the children can really experiment and get creative with their colouring creations. Why not sit with them and do some colouring of your own? It’s a great excuse to spend some quality, quiet time.
When the pictures are finished, you could use them to make gift tags for presents, or even custom made Christmas cards! But you don’t have to. The beauty of colouring is that it is so simple.
