Stop with the tinsel. Stop with the glitter. Stop with the holiday decorations and activities.
At least for a short while.
It can be hard not to find yourself and your entire class caught up in the rapid ride towards the Christmas holidays. The frenetic energy can wear us all down! These peaceful, mindful coloring activities are great to add to your list of classroom holiday activities. It is especially important to provide time for your students to practice mindfulness in the weeks leading up to the school holidays and the new year.
Holiday Mindful Coloring Sheets
Recently one of our members put in a resource request for Christmas-themed Mindful Coloring Sheets.
I would love to see some type of ‘Christmas Mindful Coloring’. Possibly similar to that of the “Pattern Coloring” style with intricate and detailed patterns. Something that preferably is calming and students can take great pride in.
It was a resource that we knew would be appreciated by many of you as we near the holiday break. Fleur, one of our talented designers, created a set of three holiday coloring sheets with a beautifully mindful aesthetic. These holiday coloring sheets have already been downloaded thousands of times in just a few short days.
More Mindful Coloring Activities for Kids
As well as these beautiful, mindful holiday coloring sheets, we have other coloring activities that would be wonderful alternatives for the children in your class who do not celebrate Christmas.
Make a Mindfulness PinwheelThis Mindfulness Pinwheel Activity is from our collection of mindfulness activities for kids. The pinwheel template can be downloaded for free and is both a fantastic coloring activity, as well as a wonderful mindful breathing activity.
