Around the holiday season it can be fun to do some Christmas themed activities with your children. It is a great way to get the whole family into the Christmas spirit and will help alleviate the dreaded school holiday boredom. Here are my top 5 websites which feature some great Christmas themed activities and best of all, these are all free.

Picklebums have some awesome printable play dough mats for younger kids. They can decorate a Christmas tree or put clothes on Santa Claus. Perfect for practicing those fine motor skills.
