It’s that time of year again.
The days are getting shorter, the nights are longer, and we’re all looking for ways to get into the festive spirit.
One of my favorite things to do with kids at this time is coloring! These reindeer coloring pages for kids are perfect for those cold winter nights.

We love letting kids color because it’s not only fun, but it’s helpful for kids. Coloring increases the strength of the small muscles in the hand which is necessary when learning how to write.
Coloring also helps preschoolers develop the coordination to color between the lines and to color within a shape.
Coloring also allows preschoolers to have fun while improving their fine motor skills!
We’ve included 3 different coloring pages of a reindeer including:
- reindeer with wreath in the forest
- reindeer with ornaments on the antlers
- reindeer prancing in the snow
