My son loved this brand new ornament coloring page from Melanie Hope Greenberg. I left it on the table for him to find after school and he sat right down to do it! Print it out along with her interfaith ornament and Christmas tree coloring page and craft and your kids will be busy with the markers and crayons while you do the dishes. (Or, preferably, finish that cup of tea.)
We don't do many handmade ornaments, so now with our new star and moon ornaments combined with our Swedish Christmas craft "woven" hearts, this is a bit of a record for us. I love that this ornament is non-denominational, so it fits a variety of occasions.
If you are traveling or going out to restaurants this holiday season, coloring pages are a nice, quiet activity to bring along. You can stick with something seasonal, or peruse our monthly coloring page feature. Melanie and I have been collaborating for 2 years, now!
