Christmas Coloring Pages

Print these free Christmas coloring pages for your kids, supply the crayons, and watch the fun unfold.

The Christmas icons on these pages make great cards for kids to personalize, too. Simply reduce the Christmas coloring page to fit your desired card size and print onto cardstock. If you'd like, print a Christmas greeting on the other side of the cardstock, or let kids write their own messages. After your kids color the images, fold the cardstock to make a card.

Editor's Tip: For a Christmas card, test the placement of the coloring page and the greeting on regular white paper before you print onto cardstock.
