Christmas Ornaments colouring activity

For this festive season we’ve created 2 free pages of Christmas Ornaments to colour and cut out. Each page has 6 pairs of shapes, each with a different festive animal and a small circle at the top which you can hole punch and:

  • Thread a wire or piece of string to hang ornaments as decorations on your Christmas Tree.
  • Thread them on a long piece of string to create a garland to hang on a wall, across a window or on a Christmas Tree.
  • Stick them with tack or tape to a window as a festive mural.
  • Make a Festive Game by mixing them up and then matching the pairs of shapes (we suggest you laminate them to keep them in good condition).
  • Stick the matching shapes back to back and hang them up so when the decoration spins in the breeze each side will show a picture.
  • Stick the matching shapes back to back, laminate, then punch hole in top and thread a coloured ribbon through the hole as a tassel, so can be used as a festive bookmark or given as a gift. 
  • Use the ornaments as gift tags.
