This resource is a no-prep way to study Christmas around the world! It includes 13 fun literacy activities and a step-by-step art project for EACH of the 9 countries represented. It includes all the art and literacy you will need for December as you explore cultural celebrations around the world. It also includes bonus resources: single page flip books for all 9 countries, poster and coloring page showing all the countries together, bonus 3D Christmas tree craft, and more!

Can't fit everything into December? No problem! Continue after Christmas in January by studying Chinese New Year!

It's such a good feeling when Christmas craziness starts in December and you remember that you're all planned and ready to go!

As a teacher myself, I know how difficult it can be to plan during the busy Christmas season. We need rigorous and interesting but easy-prep activities to get us through December.

Your download includes over 200 pages of literacy printables, plus step by step art projects for 9 countries!

You can:

  • choose from the differentiated activities to make a booklet for each student.
  • or pick and choose a new project for each day of the week, before moving to a new country!

This resource contains:

  • a comprehensive and engaging exploration of different celebrations around the world
  • 9 countries to explore through differentiated activities
  • 12 literacy activities to choose from
  • a craft that requires very few materials and step-by-step photo directions


  • A complete set of 9 mini-flip books for students to assemble, color and read for each of the 9 countries! These flip books are designed to use only one page, so they are very low prep, and match the countries from the original resource.
  • A color and black/white poster with all the countries represented. Display in class, or use as a coloring project.
  • Step By Step 3D Christmas Tree craft with ornaments representing 8 different countries.

The literacy comprehension printables are created for two different levels of reading, so booklets can be created to look the same, but contain differing levels of difficulty inside.

Step By Step Photos

Each art lesson has step-by-step photos and descriptions to walk you through the process. Show this page to students as they work so they can use it as reference!
