Free Christmas Jigsaw Puzzles

Make your own jigsaw puzzles by printing these images on card stock and cutting out the pieces with a craft knife or scissors. If you have access to a laminating machine, if you laminate the pieces first, they'll last for years.

Free Christmas Coloring Pages

Just print and color!The cute dog featured on one of the coloring pages was created by Divide by Zero for Picnik, the free online graphics progam.

Make Your Own Free Christmas Ornaments

Print the sheet of ornament designs on the heaviest card stock your printer will allow. Then, decorate with glitter or beads and punch a hole at the top to hang. These ornament sheets were also created in Picnik.
