More Christmas Printables for Kids
I separted this section out, as I felt that the printables where a tiny bit more involved and therefore maybe a little harder for preschoolers per se to have a go at. But this shouldn’t stop you from working on these projects together! The first couple of projects are still free printables, whilst the final two, do have a small download fee – to help pay for the upkeep of this website! I Hope that that is ok!
Exploring feelings with our Emotions Santa Paper Toy! This make not only a fun way to explore feelings (I do think feelings at Christmas can be VERY overwhelming), but it also makes for a cute fidget toy. This is a free download Santa Claus!
One for the whole family to enjoy.. Why not elf yourself with our fantastic free eld puppet. This is an articulated puppet that dances away and makes for great simple STEAM Project exploring the basis of mechanics. You can make this elf puppet with your child’s or student’s face, as shown in this example or use the designed elf face (one of which is free to download, the full set is available on Teachers Pay Teachers – but you only need the one free one to make your photo elf puppet!).

A classic take on the Christmas coloring pages – the paper dress up doll! I have popped the free printable paper doll for Christmas in the “older kids” section, as she is wonderfully detailed. So probably great for kids of school age. She is part of a set of dolls that we are developing for the website, that you can all mix and match.
A couple of bonus Printable Christmas Projects
Though these Christmas craft ideas aren’t free to download, I wanted to share the makes with you anyway! As you may be tempted to grab the printables anyway. The great thing about the Christmas Tree pop up card, is that you can make it from scratch, without the need for printables. But printables and worksheets are available for those interested!
