I know families are busy during December! Sometimes you need the added convenience of being able to just print off something instead of gathering supplies, crafting, and cleaning up.  With that in mind, I created the Christmas Crafts for Kids Add on Printable Pack!
It is not intended to be used alone. You won't find the book suggestions or activities included in Christmas Crafts for Kids. It is a supplement to add the ease of printables to you holiday season. Here's what's included:

  • Printable Ornaments to Color  - You will get one black and white ornament for every day that corresponds to the day's Children's Book selection. These are great for younger learners and/or for busy days when you can’t get to an activity
  •  3 Printable Countdown Calendars - These three unique countdown calendars coordinate with the Children's book selections to help your children count down to Christmas in a fun, engaging way.
  • 3 Additional Activities - Three new (not included in the book) activities to add the print & go convenience option to Days 5, 20, and 23.  


  1. Congratulations! Such a big deal! I'm tempted to add this book to my wish list. From the cover I REALLY like it!

    1. Thank you Mommy of Many Hats! It has been a LOT of work (way more than I expected) but I am so pleased with the finished product. I hope it blesses lots of families and helps them spend some quality time together at Christmas time =)

  2. Do we need to add the add on kit since it is included until today?

    1. Just use the Add to Cart button by the Limited Time Offer in red. =)

  3. I just ordered the e-book and am excited to get started. Only question, your current promotion states: "purchase Christmas Crafts for Kids and get the Add on Printable Pack FREE!" and have yet to receive the printable pack. Thanks for your help and holiday inspiration :)

  4. Kari, my guess is you ordered from a add to cart other than the one by the Limited Time Offer in red. Not a problem, just forward your confirmation email to and I'll get you hooked up =)

  5. I can't get the "add to cart" under the limited time offer to work... it isn't clickable for me... anyone else having that problem?

    1. Not sure why... but just add the other one and I'll manually take care of it for you Eric & Danielle =)
