Besides printable coloring pages, there are also printable connect-the-dot sheets. I remember spending a lot of time in my childhood working on those fun pictures, which we called dot-to-dot at the time.
In this article, we'll look at some Christmas printable coloring images across several categories.

Next, we have the ubiquitous Christmas tree image. Pictures of Christmas trees are also among children's favorite coloring pages, because the numerous ornaments and decorations allow for many colors.

Angels are another important part of the Christmas story. There are a wide variety of angels to choose from with online printables. Some look more like cartoons and are suited for young children still learning how to color, while others have a little more majesty to them, such as the one with the text "Hark the Herald Angels Sing."
Printable Eeyore, Tigger, Minnie, Mickie, and Pluto Cartoon Coloring Pages
Cartoon Coloring Pages
Christmas images featuring the child's favorite cartoon characters are sure to please. Here are several of my favorites, including my all-time favorite Eeyore.
Disney is also great at Christmas scenes, and Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto are among the most popular cartoon characters in the world.
Each one of these printables is terrifically drawn, capturing the essence of each character wonderfully.
As you can see from these wonderful examples, printable Christmas coloring pages from the Internet are a great activity. While they don't always replace regular coloring books, which many children still like to work on, printable coloring pages are still a valuable resource to have in your arsenal of rainy day projects.
