What did you do today? So far I’ve been to work, done two loads of laundry, run the dishwasher, and tried to get some holiday shopping done. Because life doesn’t stop just because the holidays are here. This year they seem to be in full force. Wouldn’t it be nice to print off this Christmas coloring book and just curl up on the couch instead of having to adult?
Y’all let’s just be real. Life is overwhelming sometimes. Ok maybe all the time. Add in the magic of the holidays and things only get more overwhelming. It’s so easy to get caught up in all the hustle and bustle of the craziness but sometimes you’ve got to just take a break. Sure it’s easy to say that, but it’s so important to actually make it happen.
Get the Kids On Board
When it comes to something I want to do, it always falls down the list. Way down. But when it’s something my kids ask for and want to do, I always manage to figure out how to make it happen. Print out these coloring sheets and let the kids color away too.
Print Out Extra Copies
Print out a few extra sets of these to keep in your purse or car. Pull them out while you’re waiting at the doctor’s office, car rider line, or just hiding in your car for a few minutes of quiet. Make sure you keep a pouch of colored pencils or markers in there too.
Relax Before Bed
If you can’t make any other time during your day, print these Christmas coloring sheets out and color for a few minutes before you go to bed. It will help you relax and forget about all the craziness of the day. Remind yourself that it doesn’t have to be finished before you go to bed either. If you need to limit yourself, set a timer or say you’re only going to color with one color or color one item before turning in for the evening.
Use Them as Gifts
We all know another mom (or ten) who need to take a few minutes for themselves too. Print off this Christmas coloring book, pair it some cute markers or colored pencils and gift them in a small bag with a cute bow. You could even throw in a bottle of wine, some hot chocolate, or a yummy snack too.
