As school lets out for winter break, kids can cozy up with winter Math and English worksheets, coloring sheets, and puzzles. They’ll have fun and keep their brains sharp over the holidays!

Click through each section to see our newest PreK-8th grade worksheets (available digitally or to print) for making the most of this break:


1. Magical math worksheets

Encourage your kids to practice their num-brrrs this winter!

Pick exactly what fits your child’s grade level: from addition and subtraction for the younger kids, to multiplication and division for the older ones, and even multi-step word problems for the advanced learner, we’ve got you covered! While having so much fun counting snowflakes and multiplying mittens, they won’t even realize they’re learning essential math skills!

Tip: No printer? No problem. We’re happy to share that most of these are available as interactive worksheets! This gives you the choice to fill them out digitally (on a computer or tablet), or you can print them out.


2. Enchanted English resources

From wintry word searches to snowy story prompts, these English Language Arts activities will capture your child’s imagination.

Inspire them to imagine what life is like on the North Pole, argue for or against unlimited snow days, or put on a reader’s theater by analyzing a play about a snowman who dreams of finding a friend.

For the reluctant learner, we have bite-sized worksheets, too! Practice spelling, grammar, and figurative language with word scrambles, word searches, and mazes.

Tip: Get the whole family involved in storytelling! Choose a writing prompt, and have each family member contribute a sentence. You can read your joint story together by the fireplace!


3. Polar puzzles

Brain-teasers provide a quiet, focused activity that children can enjoy while relaxing with family. Choose from sudokus, connect-the-dots, visual nonograms, and logic puzzles.

Plus, we’re throwing in some other non-winter-themed puzzles to make sure the kids stay occupied through the New Year!

Tip: Create a winter break puzzle challenge by setting up puzzle stations in your living room. Race to see who can solve the most puzzles!


4. Cozy coloring pages

Featuring festive scenes, adorable snowmen, and warm winter clothes, these coloring pages provide an artistic outlet for kids, help them get in the spirit, and build fine motor skills. Plus, there are cut-and-paste options for designing DIY ornaments, building a snowman, or decorating with a winter banner.

Tip: Host a family coloring night—parents included! Then, decorate your home for the holidays by displaying everyone’s finished masterpieces around the house.


With curated Math worksheets, and English activities, puzzles, and coloring sheets, you can turn winter break into a valuable learning experience for your kids. Teach them that education is a lifelong adventure that can be fun and relaxing, even on vacation!
