Free Frosty and Santa printable activities

I remember growing up and watching these holiday classics. I also remember watching them with my older children. But the past couple of years I’ve missed these movies. Every year I closely look at the ABC Family 12 Days of Christmas line up and try to remember to set the DVR so I can watch them with the younger children only to find this or that has gotten in my way. This year I can make it easier to watch them with the whole family because there’s a whole new gift set now available Blu-Ray and DVD.

Now that my movies are ordered, the kids and I can enjoy these free Frost and Santa printable activities. I can’t wait to see what they write to Santa on this letter to Santa stationary and the naughty or nice checklist can help us with one thing we are struggling with – that’s brushing teeth every night!

Print them out and have some fun while waiting for your movies to arrive. I think they are perfect for the weekend after Christmas. We set up our tree and outdoor items and then get to enjoy hot chocolate, popcorn and traditional favorites, just like when I was growing up.
