This sketch was originally designed for a holiday greeting card. Melanie has designed over 200 greeting cards! She got her start as a greeting card artist for UNICEF back in 1981. You can see more of Melanie’s artwork for greeting cards on her illustration blog.

Turn it into a Christmas tree activity: If your kids just want to color, no problem, if you want to extend the fun, turn the coloring page into a Christmas tree craft.

After coloring, cut out the rectangles. Cut a piece of green construction paper into a tree or draw a tree like I did – no comments on my lack of artistic talent, please. Glue the ornaments onto the tree. Easy peasy. Although, I’m a little afraid New Kid’s tree is going to list to the left!
