If you haven’t already started your Christmas festivities – now’s the time! Whether you decorate your Christmas tree, attend some magical Christmas events or markets, follow the Coca-Cola Truck or visit Santa Claus in his grotto. But your kids don’t always need to leave the house to enjoy the holiday season…they can do many fun festive activities right at home! Whether it’s writing their letter to Santa, presenting a Christmas choir or getting creative with some easy Christmas drawings!

It’s simple, super fun, and creative and will keep the kids busy while you wrap presents! Let’s get stuck in.

Easy Christmas Drawings

Frosty the Snowman

This is super easy and requires no skill level! It’s perfect for the festive season, especially if it’s snowy where you are, and your kids can customise the cute snowman to whatever hats, gloves and buttons they do!

All you need is:

  • A white piece of paper
  • A small bottle lid
  • A small round object (like a candle holder)
  • A mug (to draw around the bottom)
  • A pencil
  • Colouring crayons or felt tip pens

Here’s the step-by-step drawing guide:

  1. Place your piece of paper on a hard surface.
  2. Place the mug near the bottom of the page and using the pencil, draw around the base.
  3. Next, take your small round object (like a candle holder) and place that just on top of the circle you made with the mug.
  4. After the second circle is drawn, place the small lid on top of the circle and draw around it. Now you have the whole body of your snowman!
  5. Now, using coloured crayons or pens, draw a face on the small circle, a scarf, buttons and sticks for his hands! Don’t forget to draw on his nose! Also, why not add Santa hats too?
  6. If you want to create a winter season, you can snow falling from the sky, and snow on the floor too! Now, you’ve got your frosty and happy snowman!

Gingerbread Men

This one might take a little bit more drawing skill, even if it is a simple drawing. Because you’ll need to be able to trace unless you can draw the body of a gingerbread man easily! Or maybe you have a gingerbread man cookie cutter? That would also work!

You’ll need:

  • A piece of paper – can be any colour
  • A drawing pencil and coloured crayons
  • A laptop or a screen where you can load a gingerbread man

Your step-by-step guide is as follows:

  1. Using a phone, tablet or laptop. Load a picture of a gingerbread man on the screen.
  2. Have your kids place the piece of paper on the screen and using the pencil, trace the outline of the gingerbread man.
  3. Once you have the body, it’s time to draw the face and gumdrop buttons! Then colour the body in with a shade of brown.
  4. The kids can add any other features to the drawing to make it *pop*. If you’d like to make them into gingerbread cookies, draw some crumbs by its feet! Maybe draw a gingerbread house for the cheeky gingerbread men too!

Candy Canes

Next, let’s create a fabulous candy cane drawing! Whether you’re making Christmas holidays greeting cards, or want to get the kids stuck into some festive activities.

You’ll need:

  • Coloured card
  • Red and white crayons
  • A pencil
  • Black felt tip pen
  • A small red ribbon and glue (optional)

This festive drawing can be a simple card design and a holiday symbol for Christmas! Maybe you cut it out and stick it somewhere everyone can see?

  1. On the piece card, using a pencil draw a straight line up. Then at the top of the straight line, draw a curved one – to make the top of the candy cane!
  2. Draw the other side of the candy cane, so it all connects.
  3. Along the candy cane, draw horizontal lines from top to bottom.
  4. Now for the fun bit! Colouring in your candy cane! Using the red and white crayons, alternate the colours and you’ve finished!
  5. Using the black felt tip pen, outline the whole candy cane to make it pop and stand out more.
  6. If you want to add some special pizazz to the drawing, stick a small red ribbon to the neck of the cane.

A Festive Christmas Tree

A cute Christmas-themed drawing idea is, of course, the Christmas tree! And this is one is a fun project because you can customise the colours however you like! Red, green and gold? Blue, silver and white? Pink, gold and white? Multicoloured? The world is your oyster!

And the kids can decide whether to draw tinsel, a string of bells or fairy lights to their Christmas tree drawing. It’ll be a festive drawing worth putting up for everyone to see!

You’ll need:

  • Any coloured piece of card
  • A drawing pencil and an eraser
  • A green crayon
  • Various coloured felt tip pens
  • Various coloured fine pens
  • Gems and glitter (optional)
  1. On the piece of card, draw 3 triangles, one above the other. The bottom triangle should be the biggest, the middle triangle should be slightly smaller and the top triangle should even smaller. Here you’ll have made the outline of the Christmas tree!
  2. With the eraser, rub out the lines in the middle of the triangles, so you only have the outside lines left.
  3. Using the green crayon, colour in the whole Christmas tree.
  4. Here comes the fun part… Adding your decorations! With the coloured felt tip pens, you can draw baubles with patterns! Whether you add balls of blue, or balls of red. Pick whichever colour you’d want.
  5. Using the fine pens, you can draw the patterns on the baubles, or draw your tinsel in fine lines! Connecting from one side of the tree to the other. You can add some glitter to make it sparkler, or use gems as your baubles.
  6. With a green fine pen, you can choose to add some “pine branches” by drawing short flicks along the edges of the tree.
  7. Once your tree is decorated with colouring drawings, you need to add your star! Then you’re all done.

Festive Wreath

This may need more drawing skills, as it’s not always simple to draw an elegant holiday wreath –  but we can do it!

You’ll need:

  • A coloured piece of paper
  • Black fine pen
  • Green and red coloured crayons
  • Small red ribbon
  1. On the piece of card, draw a small wiggly circle. Then draw a larger wiggly circle a cm from the smaller one. This will create the base of your wreath.
  2. Draw tiny circles in the wreath – these could be berries for a holly wreath or as baubles!
  3. Using the green crayon, colour in the wreath. Then use the red crayon to colour the baubles or berries in.
  4. Once the wreath is coloured in, you can add a small red ribbon to the top and voila! You have yourself a festive wreath Christmas drawing.

Drawing of Gift Box

Your kids can take drawing inspiration from their gifts under the tree with this one! It’s straightforward, fun and they can get really creative!

You’ll need:

  • A piece of paper
  • Pencils
  • Ruler
  • Crayons or felt tip pens
  • Glue and glitter (optional)
  1. First, using a ruler they need to draw a square with 4 straight lines. This will make the box shape.
  2. In the middle of the square, draw two parallel lines from top to bottom. This will be the base of the ribbon.
  3. On top of the box, where the two parallel lines touch, draw a chunky ‘3’ on its side. This should make the top of the ribbon.
  4. Using coloured crayons or felt tip pens, decorate and customise your gift boxes! Maybe you’ll go for an elegant gold pattern, or sparkly with some glitter!
  5. If you want, you could even add a tree in the background, so it completes the drawing!
