Christmas brings so many memories and delightful experiences. It is the time of year when everybody winds down and enjoys time with their family and loved ones. For us in education, Christmas is also a time for creating engaging and fun learning experiences for our kids and students. 

Over the last few weeks, I have been working on a Christmas resource page where I want to include various educational activities, apps, and websites that teachers and parents can use to celebrate the holiday season. From secret Santa generators and Santa tracking apps to Christmas movies and Christmas coloring pages, Christmas celebration is always fun but can also be educational.

In this post, I share with you some of the best places where you can find and access Christmas designs and templates to use in your PowerPoint and Google Slides presentations or in your cards and posters. Whether you want to create a Christmas themed presentation where slides are vividly decorated with shining Christmas ornaments and falling snow, or whether you want to create a visually expressive Christmas card to show love and gratitude to your friends and loved ones, the resources below will help you out.
