Printable Christmas Pages for Your Little Ones
The holidays area fun time to spend with family and friends, have parties, travel, shop, cook and bake, and we all have so many traditions and fun times we share, even if it is just simple.
The holiday season to me, seems fairly long, (well, especially with the little ones home from school and all of the bickering and fussing lol! I start to wish they were going back to school for just a few more days!) Really, I enjoy every minute with my family, no matter how chaotic or nutty, it sure is never boring!
My big issue is trying my best to keep these little guys occupied. It may seem simple at first, I devise a whole plan for each day, and as long as everything goes well, we have a themed night.
We do have a few nights every once in a while, when we don't even come close to starting our planned baking or cooking fun, or our science experiment, or our craft, so we just reschedule for the next night, and the next;)
We have a craft hutch, yes, it is literally a craft hutch filled to the brim with crayons, stickers, paints, paper, ribbons, googly eyes, popsicle sticks, it is a bit ridiculous! It also drives me nuts since I am the one who has to clean this out almost everyday. I also have lots of crafts and things upstairs in a cubby hole. These are the things they can not take, only me or their dad. It's all the school supplies and arts and crafts I find throughout the year to replace all of the broken crayons, and used up glue sticks, etc etc.
These kids will color and lay games 24 hours a day if they could, and never, ever get bored! Of course, I run out of ideas and things and I found a special secret online! Printable coloring pages and games and worksheets! I hoard these like crazy and keep a folder with a few copies of each and when I am running low, I simply make more copies!
We hold coloring contests and the kids just love them! (Of course they all get special prizes, there isn't really a 1st, 2nd and 3rd:) But these are one of my biggest helpers, and saviors at home. I can throw a few of each out on the kitchen table, walk away and get laundry done, dishes done, cut out coupons, I have to say, coloring page time is the best part of my week. (and yes, I try to throw these out as often as possible!!)
I found these neat o Christmas printables, which are super cute! You can get 60 printables, for just $19.95, which comes to about 33 cents each.
