Christmas ~ Just Color!

The idea behind Just Color! is simple ~ theme packs all focused around coloring. There are mostly coloring pages, and a few coloring activities. The coloring pages are all in one download to make it easier to download and print all at once, in case you have coloring monsters like I do!

I have 2 new Christmas sets for you, the first is is based on the song, The Twelve Days of Christmas, with many different coloring activities to go along.  I also have another set of printables based on this song here

Just Color 12 Days of Christmas

I made another Christmas set also, which is in a separate file!

Just Color Christmas

Remember, if you want to make a mini coloring book, you can always scale down PDF files! If you have any problems downloading or printing these or other PDF files, see troubleshooting tips here.

BUT, you don’t have to use this eBook with the CC cards, it can stand alone as a simple way to learn about a particular topic.  The series is created with 3rd-6th graders in mind, but it isn’t limited to those grades.  It is a great way to explore a topic across grade levels within your homeschool!

Christmas Theme Printables & More

I am gathering a wide collection of free printables within certain themes. In order to better organize these online, I have created theme blog posts for the themes I have created many printables for!  Links to these pages in the top navigational bar labeled “Theme Printables” so you can jump to them easily.

Slowly I am adding more blog posts like this to help you find everything for the major themes we have done and will do.

Nativity Preschool Pack

Christmas Nativity Printables



I was not planning on creating an entire Preschool Pack for the Christmas season, BUT we are “stuck” down south for a few more days due to ridiculous car repair issues. I did not bring school books for the boys so they are continuing to play with the grandparents {who gladly soak up the playtime and are wonderful with the kids}.  I am left with a mind that creates when I am frustrated.  So, thanks to my car frustration, we all have a new Nativity Preschool Pack!

I made an assortment of printables, some to be laminated and reused, some are just simple worksheets.  You could use them all as worksheets, or even laminate the worksheets to use again and again.  If you don’t have a laminator, you can slide the pages into sheet protectors to use with a dry erase marker. I have a few ideas of how to use them all myself and will be sharing throughout the month after we get home and get in the swing of things again!

Don’t forget I also have an entire Christmas Fun page and you can see the ideas I have collected from around the web on mytumblrsite!

PS-Aren’t the graphics precious? I broke down and bought them from Stockberry Studio!  I am so glad I did, I love them and hope you do to!
