Christmas Mini Book and Handwriting Printables Pack Post Preview: Children will enjoy putting the story of the birth of Jesus in order to form a Christmas mini book of their own. They can also use the included Christmas handwriting pages. This packet comes in both black and white and color.
I made this Christmas printable and post that I’m sharing today back in 2013 for another site that I briefly had. That was before I merged four sites that I had all into Real Life at Home. I’m sharing both an updated version of this post plus an updated packet that has a black and white option now! It can save you money on printing and allow kids to color the pictures themselves.
When I used to teach the preschool class at our homeschool co-op (and kindergarten in school), one of the kids’ favorite things was to make their own mini books. We made them about whatever topic we were focusing on during that class session. By the end of the year, they had a whole library of mini books!
Just in time for Christmas, I have a Christmas mini book set as well as Christmas handwriting pages. These are a great addition to your religious school, homeschool, or Sunday school teaching before Christmas! (If you need a secular Christmas mini book, I have one of those too.)

Christmas Mini Book and Handwriting Printables Packet for Preschool – 1st Grade
This religious Christmas mini book is probably best suited for children in preschool to 1st grade. Of course, some of that will depend on individual needs and what works best for them. However, since this set is a free download, you can check it out and then decide.
You can print this packet on white paper to allow kids to color in the pictures on the black and white copy. This is also the option you would need to do if you are using the color version.
Conversely, you can print the black and white version on some fun festive papers instead. This means you will not offer the option of coloring.
What’s Included in the Christmas Mini Book and Handwriting Packet
The Sequencing Mini Book
This packet includes two pages of mini book pages, which when cut apart, makes a six page mini book about the birth of Jesus.
One of the challenges of this printable is that the pages of the mini book are purposefully printed out of order. So, not only is it great fine motor practice to cut out the pages, but it’s also an opportunity to put the story of Jesus in order from the Annunciation through Epiphany. Your child or students may or may not need help to get them in the correct order.
An alternate option to making a mini book is that students can cut out the boxes and then paste them down on a large piece of paper in the correct order.
Christmas Handwriting Pages
In addition to the sequencing pages, there are also two pages of handwriting practice with the same religious Christmas graphics. If you print the color version, kids can just enjoy the graphics. If you print the black and white version, they can color in the graphics in addition to writing the words.
On the handwriting pages, students will trace the word twice. They will then write it on their own once.

Each of those features a graphic that matches the graphics used in the sequencing story.
