I decided to join in with other bloggers with a unique challenge: come up with kid-made Christmas cards. I went with my good old favorite – a free printable – and created these color-in holiday cards for you to enjoy.

I took a break from my typical way of doing things and used adorable stock images I got from the super cheap Christmas bundle on Fontbundles.net. I used two different methods on Photoshop to turn them into fun color-in holiday cards for kids.
The cards fold in half with the designs on the front, a blank inside, and a watermark on the back. You can really do what you want with these – they are very simple and easy to work with.
On one of them, I couldn’t resist getting a little bit corny. I’m sure the kids will enjoy that humor as well! The one with the cat says “Meow-rry Christmas” and the one with the reindeer says “Happy Holidays”.
How to use these color-in holiday cards for kids:
Download your card file by entering your email address in the form below. You will be subscribed to weekly updates from Moms & Crafters (from which you can unsubscribe at any time.)
Look out for the PDF file in your inbox.
Here is a preview of the file you will receive. Both cards are on one sheet of paper:
If you prefer more detailed cards and/or Hanukkah themed cards, I’ve made a set for grown-ups here.
3. Cut and fold:
Cut the page in half horizontally (so that the bottom and top are two separate cards.)
Fold it in half so that it opens on the right and the color-in character is on the front.
Bring out the crayons and markers and color away!!
The main thing is that the kids enjoy!
I hope you love the color-in holiday cards for kids! How else do you involve your children in holiday prep?
