Santa Coloring Pages (Free PDF Printables)

On this page, you will find 84 Santa coloring pages that are all free to download and print! The holiday season is my absolute favorite time of year, and I can’t help but get excited about all things festive! So, of course, I had to do a series on the one and only Santa!

For this series, I created a wide range of Santas that I think will appeal to all ages and skill levels. Included are simple outlines of Santa for kids, Santa with snowmen, Santa delivering presents, traditional-looking Santas, popular kid’s characters dressed as Santa, Santa mandalas, plus tons more!

After the coloring pages have been completed, they can then be used as wall art in a bedroom or classroom, decorations for a nature-themed birthday, a DIY bookcover, scrapbooking cutouts, plus tons of other creative uses.

All these PDF coloring pages are on standard US letter size, but they also fit perfectly onto A4 paper sizes! Enjoy!

10 Craft Ideas To Do With Santa Coloring Pages

Here are 10 inexpensive, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!

10. Greeting Cards

My Santa coloring pages are ideal for that last-minute Christmas party where you need a card and don’t have time to go buy one.

You can make it one-of-a-kind and truly special by having your kids color it.

Print it on the half-page or the quarter-page and fold it accordingly.

You can choose from illustrations that have a greeting on the front or ones that don’t – so you can write your own. And don’t forget to fill in the inside!

9. Wrapping Paper

Consider using my Santa pages as wrapping paper for a small box or trinket.

You can color in the illustration yourself or put your kids to work with markers, crayons, or colored pencils.

Just make sure when you wrap up the gift that you lie the paper down illustration side out so that the beautiful picture shows.

8. Dear Santa Letters

If you have littles who still believe in Santa, then why not use my illustrations on which to write Dear Santa letters before Christmas?

You can choose from a coloring page that has space on the front – the Santa’s Sack of Toys or Rudolph Leading Santa With His Red Nose would be great – or simply write the letter on the back.

Make sure your kids color in the illustrations before putting them in an envelope and sending them to the North Pole!

7. Party Decorations

If you’re hosting a Christmas party or the main event itself you can decorate – and get your kids to help – using my Santa illustrations.

A few weeks before the big day, have your kids start coloring in different Santa pages. Then you can decide which ones you’re going to use and how.

For example, you could string together several cut-out figures and make bunting for the wall or attach notecards with food labels for your table spread.

You could turn them into seating place cards or centerpieces or make a Christmas-y mobile hanging from the ceiling.

6. Fluffy Hat And Beard Santas

For a fun craft that is perfect for preschoolers, you’ll just need a bunch of cotton balls and glue.

Have the kids color in the Santa illustration, but then instead of just leaving his beard and parts of his hat white, they can fill them in with cotton balls glued on.

5. Stand-Up Santa Figures

To make stand-up Santa figures, you’ll need some toilet paper rolls and glue.

You’re going to instruct your kids to color in Santa only and cut him out around his outline.

(If you want, you can reinforce him with cardstock cut to shape.)

Then you’re going to take either a whole toilet paper roll or a half, depending on the size of your Santa, and glue it to the back.

The result is a free-standing Santa that is the perfect decoration for your tabletop.

4. Santa Masks

I highly recommend the Easy Santa Face To Color With Merry Christmas Text or the Super Easy Outline Of Santa for this craft.

You’re going to have your kids color in just the face of Santa and cut it out, then poke holes where the eyes go and enlarge as necessary.

Then you’re going to prick holes on each side; I like to do it where the beard meets the hat.

You’ll get twine, a heavy string, or even ribbon, thread it through the hole, and knot it, cutting it off the roll with a good six to eight inches to spare. Do that on both sides.

Now you have a size-adjustable Santa mask!

3. Santa Hat Headbands

The Santas Hat coloring page is perfect for this craft, which requires only construction paper and tape.

You’re going to take two-inch strips of construction paper and fashion a circle out of them, big enough to fit onto your kids’ heads (you might need to use two).

Then you’re going to have your kids color in the Santa hat – and let them really get creative because it doesn’t have to be just a traditional rendition!

Cut the hat out, tape, staple, or even paste it onto the headband, and you’ve got a makeshift wearable Santa hat!

2. Curly Beard Santas

To make curly beard Santas, you’ll need white construction or computer paper.

Pick a Santa illustration that features his beard prominently, like Adorable Simple Santa Claus or Easy Santa Face To Color.

Then cut the paper into one-inch strips and use a pencil or pen to roll them up, holding them tightly and then letting them go.

Your kids will then glue the curly cues to the beard, filling it in all the way.

1. Puffy Paint + Glitter Santas

Give Santa the pizzazz he deserves by having your kids decorate one of my coloring pages with puffy paint and glitter glue (or glue + glitter).

Kids can outline the drawings with puffy paint in different colors or fill in the jolly elf’s hat, coat, and boots with glitter glue.
