As we are always looking at fun activities to do during the holidays I thought I would create some free Christmas color by number printables for you.

These color by number sheets are a fantastic addition to the lineup of Christmas activities for kids. Watch their excitement grow as they bring festive scenes to life by following the numerical color codes, adding a vibrant touch to the joyous season.

I have put together 6 different Christmas color by number pages. These will keep the kids quiet for hours.

We love coloring in our home as it instantly calms the whole house down! When the kids are super hyper, especially around the holidays. Coloring is a great way for them to refocus and relax.

What are the benefits of using color by number worksheets?

There are several benefits to using Christmas color by number printable worksheets:

  1. When coloring in a Christmas color by number printable, you need to use your hands to color within the lines. This helps to develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
  2. Focusing on coloring within the lines of the numbered sections requires concentration and attention to detail, which can improve a child’s ability to concentrate on tasks.
  3. While the numbered sections provide a framework for coloring, there is still room for creativity in choosing which colors to use and how to blend them together.
  4. Christmas color-by-number printables can be a fun activity for children and adults alike during the holiday season. It can be a way to unwind, relax, and enjoy the holiday spirit.
  5. As you color in each numbered section, you’ll be identifying and recognizing numbers, which can improve number recognition skills.
  6. Coloring can be a relaxing activity that helps to reduce stress and anxiety, which can be especially beneficial during the busy holiday season.
