Christmas Printables Roundup

by kevin on December 16, 2013

Sometimes it feels like the Christmas Season passes by in a flash. There’s barely enough time to buy presents and decorate the house, much less write a family newsletter, put up holiday pictures or prepare the meal for a party. If you’d prefer to enjoy the holidays instead of struggle to keep up with them, you’ll be happy to know that the FreePrintable.net websites offer quick, free templates that can be printed instantly from a home computer.

SantaPrintables.com is the first stop for everything Christmas. Moms, Dads and other secret “Santa Helpers” can help foster their children’s sense of holiday magic with letters from Santa, Mrs. Claus, the reindeer and the elves. Each letter comes with fill-in-the-blank topics that address fears, wish lists and behavior. Other great activities for kids at the site include matching and memory games, greeting cards and an Advent calendar that counts down each day until Christmas and features different holiday icons.

SantaPrintables.com isn’t the only place for Christmas kid stuff, though. I’ve also got Christmas certificates at FreePrintableCertificates.net for kids who are “Nice,” “Naughty” and even in need of a “Lump of Coal.” Sometimes it’s the only way to get a child to be on their best behavior!

Additionally, parents and teachers alike can benefit from the Christmas dot-to-dot pages at DotToDots.net, which have pictures of Santa, Christmas trees and penguins, all in various levels of difficulty. FreePrintableColoringPages.net has more than 80 Christmas coloring pages of stockings, presents, reindeer, cookies and more. Finally, FreeWritingPrompts.net has Christmas essay prompts and creative ideas for holiday short stories.

Sending a Christmas card to friends and family is a holiday tradition, so I have lots of choices. FreePrintableGreetingCards.net has nearly 50 Christmas cards decorated with nutcrackers, snowmen, wreaths and Christmas trees that can be folded and sent with Seasons’ Greetings. People sending out a family newsletter might prefer the Christmas letterhead at FreeLetterHeadTemplates.net, the Christmas stationery at FreePrintableStationery.net or the Christmas borders at PageBorders.net. These have colorful borders, backgrounds, headers and footers and are great for spicing up correspondence with winter landscapes, heaps of presents and festive homes.

If you live near your family (or even if you don’t!) you’re probably having some sort of get-together for the big day. If you’re the one throwing the party, make sure that you have all of your food prepped by shopping with a Christmas grocery list or menu planner from FreePrintableGroceryList.com. If you’re just bringing a dish to someone else’s holiday bash, make sure that you can share the recipe with the Christmas recipe cards from FreePrintableRecipeCards.net. And if a gift exchange, Yankee swap, or present extravaganza follows, make sure you know what gift goes to which relative by using the printable gift tags at FreePrintableGiftTags.net.

All of the printables are available for free as PDF files. They can be easily downloaded and printed from a home computer, then written on with pen or pencil. Customizable DOC files cost a few dollars per printable, and can be typed into directly and edited from a word processor such as Microsoft Word.

Happy Holidays, everyone, and happy printing too!
