These Christmas coloring pages, printable gift tags, and printable place cards are great DIY holiday crafts for the whole family. Easily entertain the kids, label your Christmas gift baskets, and organize your holiday place settings.
The holidays are all about spending quality time with the family. The days are great for sledding and building snowmen, while the evenings are perfect for quiet time together sipping hot chocolate by the fireplace, or a streaming yule log. However, shopping for holiday gifts, cooking for a large group, preparing guest rooms, and decorating for the holidays takes a lot of time and energy.
A little DIY help can go a long way toward easing the holiday stress. Entertain the kids with Christmas coloring pages, or turn a Christmas word scramble into a game for the whole family. Spruce up your presents with printable gift tags or organize your holiday entertaining with place cards. These will add a homey feeling to your holiday spread while keeping the family engaged during times when you have to get things done around the house.

Printable place cards

Christmas coloring pages and word scramble
Last but not least — and most exciting for the kids — are these fun Christmas coloring pages. They make for a great indoor activity when the weather outside is a tad too frightful (or when you need to sneak away to help Santa wrap presents). Kids can sit by the fire while coloring Santa Claus, reindeer, snowmen, and carolers. Or, the whole family can join in on the fun word scramble. See who can find words like “reindeer” and “stocking” the fastest. Perhaps the winner gets to open a present early…
The kids will love the indoor activities, and your guests will admire your decorative touches to the meals and gifts. You can also create a fun holiday tablescape full of holiday sweets and Christmas crafts, which is a great way to delight the kids during holiday parties. Happy holiday crafting!
