Basic Christmas Tree and Candy Cane Coloring Pages

Working to fatten up our holiday selection of coloring pages, I've been busy on the two upcoming holidays: Halloween and Christmas. I've yet to post the Halloween pages, but I've added two new Christmas time coloring pages and the new Christmas category to the seasonal coloring pages section of the site.

The two coloring pages for today are more iconic/simple in nature. Candy canes are a popular favorite around our home at Christmas time. As a young child, I had fond memories of hanging them on the Christmas tree, with them being dressed as reindeer. We had our candy cane decorations for several years hanging on our trees before they became more of an eye sore than a decoration.

In my own home, we have a hard time keeping the candy canes on the tree for more than a day or two after the tree has been decorated.

Again, I like these types of coloring pages because they allow the young artist to have some creative liberties in how they choose to render the coloring pages.

The next coloring page to be added to the Christmas collection is very appropriately the Christmas tree. This iconic symbol of Christmas time is rich with many dimensions of meaning. I appreciate how in the dead of winter, we are reminded of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Aspects of his birth and life are found as one contemplates the significance of the star, the evergreen tree, the candy canes, twinkling lights, and more.

The simplicity of the design makes this particular rendering good for coloring page contests allowing for personal embellishments and such.
