Want something very simple for your kid to do this Christmas? Simply print out these super adorable Christmas number sequencing puzzles for kids, along with a pair of scissors and let the fun begin.

Your kid will have fun and work on many skills as well. He/she will work on her cutting skills, problem solving skills, attention/focus, number recognition, and number sequencing. She’ll learn to do number sequencing from 1-7 and 1-11. There is also one without any number for her to work on problem solving and recognition of the puppy.

There are two designs. One is the adorable Christmas puppy. The other design is of the words Merry Christmas in read on top of white snow. With both puzzles you get the options of downloading just the photo without the numbers at the bottom, downloading the easy level with numbers 1-7 or harder level with more strips and numbers 1-11.

Easy activity tip: You can recreate the same number sequencing puzzle simply by printing out your favorite family photo, cutting it into strips, and writing numbers on the bottom.

These puzzles would be best printed on photo paper or cardstock to really show the beautiful colors of the design and for sturdiness. You can also print this out onto copy paper and laminate it.

This puzzle is 8.5×11″. If you want it to fill the entire paper, you need to set your printer setting to borderless printing, otherwise you will have a little bit of white border around the design.

Before downloading, please be aware that this puzzle is for person use only. You can not redistribute or sell it. This is a non-commercial use digital download.

  2. Hard- Print out one copy and let your child put together the puzzle without seeing what it should look like.

  3. Hardest – Print the design without the numbers. Have him/her look at the printable, cut it into strips and put the puzzle together with only recollection of what she saw at the beginning.

If your kids love coloring as much as mine, you’ll want to have lots of coloring pages on hand leading up to Thanksgiving day and on the day of. Give them something to do while you cook and they anxiously wait to eat. And to avoid the repetitive “I’m hungry” or “Is the food ready?” moments.

You need an arsenal of coloring pages to entertain your little ones so today I will be sharing with some wonderful coloring printables that have helped me through past Thanksgivings.

But first, I want to share with you my most recent one, the “Give Thanks” coloring page.

  • Use this coloring page to lower your anxiety. This time of year brings anxiety to a lot of people. So grab this coloring page, sit down and color this Thanksgiving coloring page in. It will help you relax and focus on all the small things you are thankful for. For me, it has helped me be more present with my kids and truly enjoy being with them. It distracts me from all the horrible things happening in the world, and appreciates the little boys that I have. You can also write down on this coloring page all the things you are grateful for.
  • If you like coloring in Procreate, there is a PNG file in the Download section below. You can color with JPG files as well, but PNG files allow you to fill in the drawing simply by dragging the colors to that area. I have repetitive injuries on both hands due to typing fast since I was 8 years old, so Procreate has really help me enjoy coloring while limiting stress on my fingers.
