Christmas Directed Drawings are an easy way to add art and fun into these crazy days before the holiday break! Students need as much help as possible to practice following directions and paying attention. These easy and fun directed drawings for Christmas include in the monthly pack: a reindeer, Santa, an ornament, an elf, and a moose. (I included the moose to go along with a favorite read aloud Mooseltoe.). In each of my directed drawing packs, you will see kid-friendly directions and also a video tutorial.
Reindeer Directed Drawing
We usually do a unit on reindeer, including non-fiction reading and conclude the week with a directed drawing. Reindeer are fascinating animals and I love watching YouTube videos that show their migration across rivers and land. This is one of those drawings that my kiddos will draw again and again!
Elf Directed Drawing
Kids LOVE elves, probably because of Elf on a Shelf, but who doesn’t love the idea of Santa’s elves making our gifts? I even surprise my students with an elf of their own in their stocking on our “Elf Day.” There is also an Elf Craft that is easy to make for Christmas!
Out of all the Christmas directed drawings we do, this is the one that is my favorite. Best part is that each one is unique and different. Even when they don’t turn out “right” they still are somehow perfect! Those end up being the “best” ones!

These are my favorite directed draws! I have several months now and the steps are easy for kindergarten students to follow. They come out SO cute every single time!
Michelle M. says:
I have done one of your directed drawings every Wednesday with my class (that’s the day everyone is online), and they have LOVED them! They’re easy to follow, and the kids feel so successful when they’re done. They especially loved Santa and the elf this month! Thank you!
