Christmas Coloring Activities

By Ann Zlotnik

We have arrived at the fourth week of Advent, and Christmas day is nearly here. The Marian Library’s virtual Advent wreath is glowing brightly now that all four candles have been lit.

The final gift from the Marian Library is a selection of printable coloring pages featuring Nativity images from the Marian Library’s collections. Some are quite detailed (perfect for those sharpened colored pencils), and some have big open spaces (excellent for crayons or broad-point markers). All ages can enjoy a quiet and peaceful moment of coloring and creating.

If you enjoy both coloring and cutting, grab your scissors, then download and print our create-your-own Nativity set. Consider making it a fun family activity.

Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones from all of us at the Marian Library!
