Family Crafting: Holiday Coloring Page Puzzle Mashup!

Colorful gingerbread house on white paper and cut into 4 pieces
One thing we love doing during this time of year is spending quality time with our family creating holiday crafts together. These holiday coloring puzzles are a great way to involve everyone in your house, regardless of age or artistic ability. It’s a fun holiday DIY craft that gives every single participant the power to create on their own terms with one super fun result! I was inspired to try this with my family after doing it with my students!
Time Duration: 1 hour
Skill Level: Beginner
OOLY Products Needed: Other Items Needed:
  • Poster Board
  • Scissors
  • Sharpie
Step 1: Begin by drawing a picture in permanent marker on the poster board. We let the children decide and they decided on a gingerbread house!
Step 2: Cut your paper into as many pieces as you have people participating. We cut ours into four pieces.
Step 3: Now for the fun part! Each person/group chooses what OOLY supplies to use to begin decorating their portion of the “puzzle.”
Step 4: After each person was done coloring, we pieced the puzzle back together and it created a beautiful creation! You can definitely tell which part was done by the youngest, but that’s the best part!
I hope you and your family enjoy taking some easy holiday drawings, and then coloring them to create an original work of art together. It truly is a holiday craft that is perfect for all ages!
