Every day is a good day to make crafts; at least, that’s our motto here at Messy Little Monster.

From encouraging self-expression, and strengthening fine-motor skills to fostering self-confidence, making crafts and art projects with our children has amazing benefits on top of being super fun!

But, Christmas is an extra magical time to get creative with our kids, and that’s why we’ve created this very easy but extra-fun Santa colouring page.

This Santa Claus colouring page can be extended into a line art project for kids. You can either colour the Santa colouring page as it is or you can spend a little time using a thin black marker to add lines to your Santa Claus. The lines will add that little something extra to your Santa image as well as being a great mindfulness activity. 

Colouring is a lovely and relaxing way for us parents to bond with our kids and what better time to bond than Christmas time!  As well as this Santa colouring page we also have a set of Christmas colouring pages for you to check out and these colouring cards for Christmas
