‘Tis the season for … directed drawing, Christmas style! We pulled together our very favorite Christmas drawing activities for kids so you can walk your students through them step by step to help develop their listening skills and ability to follow directions … with a seasonal twist!

Christmas Drawing Activities for Kids

How to Draw a Snowman

Do you wanna … draw … a snowman? We made drawing Frosty easy with this directed drawing activity. You can pause the video at any point for kids or rewind (do we still use that word?) so kids can catch up as they create their snowman on the page.

 

How to Draw a Reindeer

This is a reindeer game every kid can participate in! This directed drawing Christmas activity recreates Rudolph, Cupid, Donder, or Blitzen — it’s really up to your students.

 

Teach Starter Teacher Tip: When you’re directing students on how to draw their reindeer, kid-friendly terms like “draw a smile line” works for the undercurve used to make the reindeer’s belly. You can also call an overcurve a “rainbow line” — e.g. the line made to create the reindeer’s head.

How to Draw Santa

What’s the point of reindeer without the jolly guy in the red suit? This directed Christmas drawing activity puts Santa in focus.

 

How to Draw an Elf

Of course, if you’ve got Santa, you have to have his elves.

 

For older kids, this roll-to-create elf is a holiday hit!
