What is in the Free Christmas book for toddlers: Monsters at Christmas activity pack
The “Monsters at Christmas” book from Laura Baker is all about monsters and them having fun and creating mischief, and magic at Christmas time. The sheets are full of fun ways for kids to engage more deeply with the book and get creative this holiday season.
Who’s driving the sleigh?
The first sheet asks kids to draw their own Christmas monster driving Santa’s sleigh. This sparks imagination as they think about what their monster would look like in the Santa hat and flying the sleigh full of presents. It’s also a great opportunity to chat about different colors they might paint the sleigh. Visualizing a silly monster delivering gifts is sure to get kids giggling.
Colour the Christmas monsters
What child doesn’t love coloring? This sheet provides space for coloring in all the delightful Christmas monsters from the book. As kids creatively color each monster, they can talk through what makes each one unique. Coloring is relaxing and supports fine motor skills.
Draw your own Christmas monster
Get those creative juices flowing by having your child draw their very own Christmas monster! The open-ended nature of this activity encourages kids to invent monsters with their own special features. Share details about the monsters with each other when finished. Kids can gain confidence presenting their imaginative ideas.
Find the Santa monster
Keep an eye out for the Santa Monster hiding in each page of the book! When you spot him, come back to this sheet and practice drawing skills by rendering the Santa Monster. Like a fun hidden picture game, this engages focus and attention to detail.
Favourite monsters, poems, and getting things done
Our last few sheets enable kids to respond creatively on their own; a doing words, a poem. Through art, writing, discussion and more with these pages, children dive deeper into the monster world while building literacy and emotional intellifence skills. Most importantly, they’ll have a monstrously merry time!
We think these are all rather fun – what do YOU think, and which is your children’s favourite activity? Do let us know.
