Let the stresses of the holiday season go and lose yourself in the delicate details and magic of a snowflake coloring page. Choose from eight printable snowflake coloring pages—small, medium, and large below.
There are a lot of good, almost magical things about the holiday season. From getting to spend quality time with loved ones to watching your kid open presents on Christmas morning. (Remember that burning anticipation and unadulterated joy from your childhood?) However, it probably isn’t all rainbows and unicorns … or should I say tinsel and reindeer?
No denying it, there are parts of the holiday season that are stressful! Unfortunately, the rest of the world doesn’t just stop, and during the holidays you have many additional demands on your time and your finances. If you’re looking for a guilt-free way to de-stress, you’re in the right place. These free snowflake printable coloring pages are just the thing!
Coloring, in general, is a great way to reduce stress, anxiety, and promote mindfulness. When you’re coloring, you have to focus on the activity in front of you … not the rest of your unfinished to-do list. According to WebMD, “Coloring for 20 minutes or more is an effective way to lower your heart rate and decrease feelings of anxiety. In the studies, coloring more intricate designs like mandalas was more effective than coloring in a plaid pattern or blank page.”
If you aren’t familiar with the concept, mandalas are geometric designs that tend to be used in relation to meditation and are part of the Hindu and Buddhist cultures. Now, a snowflake is not a mandala, but there are some geometric similarities. This means a snowflake coloring page may be more effective at decreasing your stress and anxiety than other coloring pages that depict specific scenes.
In addition to helping you relax without the aid of calories, carbs, sugar, alcohol, caffeine, or a screen, I love these printables because they are free snowflake coloring pages! I’m sure that your budget doesn’t need any additional strain around the holidays. (I know mine doesn’t!)
