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.

In this post, I will direct you to the page where the file is hosted on my website or blog, since they are in various places! I hope this helps you find things within themes! I will try to gather anything I have done, created, or posted about surrounding this theme. Slowly I am adding more blog posts like this to help you find everything for the major themes we have done and will do.

12 Days of Christmas ~ Christmas Fun Notebooks

I made my children some Christmas Fun Notebooks for them to work through over the next few weeks.  The idea stemmed from Ladybug’s Tot Time Notebook, but I thought the boys might like a special notebook too and I was right! Christmas Activity Notebooks

I filled each child’s notebook {1/2” 3 ring binder} with fun activities based on their skill level and interests. I use heavy weight sheet protectors and only Expo dry erase markers and everything erases with very little effort-even Ladybug can erase her own notebook.  I made a pdf file of the image on the cover in various stocking colors for you to download if you’d like to use it also!  Just pick a color for each child, print and write in their name {or have the child write their own name}.

Ladybug’s has the A-Z Christmas sheets, and a few pages from the Nativity Printable PackChristmas Activity Notebooks

Christmas Activity Notebooks

I printed loads of fun worksheets from Activity Village for Krash and Pac Man, also some from Family Fun.  The boys love mazes so many of those! You can see many of the sheets I printed pinned on my Christmas pinterest board!

Specifically for Krash, I prepared a few of the wonderful games from Walking by the Way’s holiday game packs.  I put them in his notebook so he can flip through and choose one for us to play!  He also has several sheets form the Nativity Printable Pack.Christmas Activity Notebooks

These notebooks have gone over VERY well, and took little effort to create.  I may be using this concept more with themes in the future for the little 2.  Much cheaper than laminating and printing over and over again!

12 Days of Christmas ~ Christmas Book Printables

We have a few favorite Christmas books, I shared 10 of them here. Reading is one of our favorite things, especially at Christmas time when these wonderful books come out of hiding for their special month on display!  I chose a few of our favorite books and made some story prop printables to use in retelling and while reading.  My kids, all 3 of them, love when we use story props.

Here are the 3 books I chose, you can click on them to see more about each on Amazon  Under each book are the story props included in each set, you’ll need to download the pdf files here on the website.  I used real photos when possible, especially of animals!

You can use any printables from other printable packs as story props too, just print out the 3 part card pages and trim around the images.  Most of Homeschool Creation’s packs have a specific book to go along!

The Busy Hands Play Dough Box

Busy Hands Play Dough Box

I haven’t always made my own play dough, but this past year I have.  Thanks to a wonderful play dough recipe {I got permission from the original author to share the recipe with my readers, find a printable too!}  that even a non-cook like me can handle and remember, I have made several batches and my children are oh-so-thankful.

IMG_7487

Of course, I had to pull out some Christmas-y play dough.  But why stop with just play dough?  My organizational freak of a brain got going and came up with a little solution to our play dough playing dilemma.

Dilemma # 1 ~ dragging out the play dough tools and remembering to clean it all up and put it all back.

Dilemma #2 ~ remembering to add in my themed dough cutters when we switch themes/holidays.

Dilemma #3 ~ “Mommy, I can’t get the baggie open, {top off of the play doh}.”

 

Solution…The Busy Hands Box!

IMG_7465

 

I had this awesome box, and put it to work.  I made a space for our tools and also spaces for our current play dough {a home made batch usually lasts us about a month}.  The box lid shuts tight and seals so the play dough stays fresh, but each individual color doesn’t have to be in a separate {and difficult for a 2 year old to open} container/baggie.

IMG_7461

You can surprise your kids for Christmas, give one as a gift, or just make your own life a bit better by organizing your own play dough supplies in a fun new way.  If you haven’t busted out some Christmas-y play dough, here’s some ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

  • Green ~ add green glitter & peppermint extract
  • Red ~ add red glitter and cinnamon or peppermint extract
  • White ~ add silver glitter and vanilla extract or French vanilla coffee cream powder gives it a nice sugar-cookie scent.
  • White ~ add red and green glitter…peppermint extract too!
  • Yellow ~ add almond extract and gold glitter

The scent is always a very big deal for my kids and this set was a big hit.  Notice Ladybug’s joy in her smelling…

As a special surprise, I added a new set of tools to the box for my kids, I got them this neat Melissa and Doug set and I am happy with it.

In case you like my box label, I made it in pdf form so you can use it too.  There are also 2 play dough alphabet pages, I laminated mine to keep with the box.  IMG_7492

12 Days of Christmas Printables

12 Days of Christmas Printables



In honor of my participation in the 12 Days of Christmas with these other wonderful bloggers {listed below}, I figured it was a good time to make a few 12 Days of Christmas printables!

image

Each set is different and has many possibilities, I will share a few of my ideas below! You will also see these in action in the coming weeks on my blog.

 

Cut this set in half to make simple number tracing worksheets.  You could also cut off the tops only and make a nice set of flashcards and laminate them.  Slip the sheets in sheet protectors and add them to a Calendar Notebook or Tot Time Notebook.  So many possibilities!

12 Days of Christmas Numbers

 

There are 2 sheets in this set, one with traceable numbers and one with blank rectangles.  Your child can work on numbers, coloring, or both.  Keep the sheet whole or even cut it apart.  Slip a sheet into the Crayola Dry Erase Center and use Expo thin or click markers so the sheets can be used again and again!12 Days of Christmas Coloring

 

I plan to laminate the set below and use them in a pocket chart for matching sentences and matching ordinals.  You can also use these for magnets {put magnet stickers on the back of laminated cut outs} on a cookie sheet while reading the book or singing the song to sequence.
