When I was a kid, I didn’t just leave milk and cookies for Santa. I love Mrs. Claus and the elves their own plates, and then I left a plate of carrots for each (individual) reindeer. I was either really generous, or really trying to keep myself off the naughty list. For those of you whose kids look forward to leaving a treat for Santa (and/or his whole brood) I have THE BEST printable placemat for you today! Kate worked her magic again and made this colorable (!!) placemat for the kiddos to work their magic on. It’s the perfect activity for them to stay occupied this weekend while you finish decorating, baking and wrapping! AND speaking of baking… see those cookies there? Alison from The Alison Show sent them over and there’s a special discount for her online cookie making course at the bottom of this post so you can learn to make them too!!! Double WIN!

The placemat can be printed in black and white on 11″ x 17″ paper at your local office supply store (or at home if you have a printer big enough!). Mine cost about 50 cents to print locally! Then just hand it off to the little ones to color their brains out on it! Nice list, here they come!
Now, about these COOKIES! Like I mentioned above, Alison has an amazing cookie decorating course called Alison’s Cookie Party. It’s online and has videos, an e-book, recipes, party ideas… the works! It’d be a great gift, for the baker in your life… or yourself. The best part is Alison is offering 20% off to Studio DIY readers if you sign up between now and Saturday (the 20th!). Head to the website here and enter “studiodiy” at checkout to get the discount… and then please send me all the cookies you make. Ok, you don’t have to. But if you need a taste tester…
Happy coloring, baking and all-around Christmas celebrating! Gosh, this holiday is so great.
