The Benefits of Drawing for Kids
Firstly, drawing helps young children develop fine motor skills that will be important later in life. It also helps them practice problem-solving, as they must figure out how to turn their ideas into reality.
Drawing can even have educational benefits such as helping children with reading comprehension and building up vocabulary. It’s also an opportunity for kids to express themselves creatively and experiment with different techniques and mediums—all while having fun!

Christmas Drawing Prompts Supplies
- Printer (I have this one)
I have the HP printer 8710 but it’s not available anymore. It’s still running well for years now. Look for another HP Instant Ink ready printer so that you can use their program to send you ink cartridges whenever your printer gets low on ink.
What’s included in this Christmas Drawing Prompts Pack?
Now that we know why drawing is so beneficial to kids, let’s talk about what you will expect with these Christmas drawing prompts!
This drawing prompt pack has 7 pages of fun Christmas-themed initial drawings of a snowglobe, Christmas tree, sleigh with gifts, snowman, Santa going down a chimney, Christmas sweater, and Christmas cookies!
For the snow globe page, for example, you could challenge them to complete the picture by drawing something they would find at the North Pole or a snowy scene outside Santa’s workshop. You could also have your kids illustrate what they think Christmas looks like from an animal’s point of view—like a reindeer or polar bear!
The possibilities are almost endless with these Christmas drawing prompts! Kids will love them!
Drawing and coloring is an excellent way to foster creativity in young minds. During the holidays, it’s especially important to find ways for our children to stay engaged and excited about learning—and Christmas drawing prompts are the perfect way to do just that!
