Look. I’ve got about six dozen ADORABLE holiday crafts pinned to my “Christmas FTW” board on Pinterest. But I’ve finally come to an extraordinary place of clarity where I’ve realized that I’m not crafty. At all. So these Christmas coloring pages are exactly my holiday crafting speed.

Oh, I’ve tried. (How I’ve tried.) There are a handful of the most abominable “ornaments” that we hang on our tree every year. Some crazy recipe that includes a truck load of cornstarch and glue. It was a nightmare.

But coloring?! Oh heck yes. Sign us up. Some fun coloring pages, a table full of crayons, colored pencils, and markers married with a batch of hot cocoa? BOOM. Holiday magic.

I excel at family activities that allow me to also partake in the enjoyment.

So, I hope you will follow my lead and pour yourself a cup of cocoa and impress your kiddos with your mad coloring skills.

New to Zendoodling? Use the blank shapes and consider these tips:

  1. Use cardstock or heavy paper with extra paper underneath so marker doesn’t go through
  2. Doodle different patterns into each quadrant. Start with a pencil if you want, but draw very lightly.
  3. Use two sizes of black marker (ie. Sharpie Fine Point and Sharpie Extra Fine Point) for the final doodles.
  4. Each time you make a new shape, let that shape be doodled into. (A big polka dot is really a circle that can be filled with its own doodles.)
  5. Try some holiday doodles! Snowflakes, stars, santa hats, candy cane stripes, etc.
  6. Try to vary texture, size, and value of the doodles. (Ie. If one shape is fairly light and has a lot of white space, the shape next to it can have more concentrated doodles or darker doodles.)
  7. Let the ink dry for at least 5 minutes before erasing pencil lines.
