Coloring page art activity
If your kids just want to color the sheet, no problem. However, if you want to extend the fun, turn the coloring page into a Christmas tree craft.
After coloring, cut out the rectangles of toys and ornaments. Then, cut a piece of green construction paper into a tree shape, or draw a tree on plain white paper like I did - no comments on my lack of artistic talent, please.
Glue the toys and ornaments onto the tree. Easy peasy!
