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

This collection has all the art and literacy you will need for December as you explore cultural celebrations around the world.

Over 150 pages of literacy printables, plus step by step art projects for 8 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!

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

Note: The legal terms of use for this resource allows for single classroom use only, so commercial uses such as Outschool are not permitted.

This pack contains

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

UPDATE! I've added a complete set of flip books for students to assemble, color and read for each of the eight countries! These flip books are designed to use only one page per student, so there's no prep for the teacher.

More Details

This pack includes winter celebrations from around the world.

Christmas is the focus in many areas, but it also includes Diwali (India) and Chinese New Year (China).

Can't fit them all into December? No problem - continue after Christmas in January by studying Chinese New Year or another country of your choice.

8 Different Countries and Cultures

Christmas is explored in Mexico, Australia, Germany, Canada, England, Sweden.

Diwali is explored in India, and Chinese New Year is explored in China.


The literacy printables are created for different levels of writing ability, so each booklet 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!

Please click the PREVIEW button above to see many examples of the artwork included as well as the many activities. You will also find some free sample pages to use with your students!
