You needn’t always rely on your television or other electronic devices to keep your child busy during the holidays. You can entertain them with some fun art-related activities they can do at home.
Line drawing and coloring are among the best creative, educational activities for children today. They not only help get your child’s creative juices flowing, they help them learn about colours as well.
If your child is familiar with the popular animated movie ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’, they’ll recognize the character of Jack Skellington right away. This will add to their enthusiasm over filling in this colouring page.
It may seem a little complicated but line drawing is quite easy and your child is sure to find it fun and engaging. You won’t need any professional tools either to get them started on this activity; just a few basic art supplies will suffice.

Why This Jack Skellington Coloring Page Is Good For Kids
This coloring page can provide a great pastime for your kids when it’s too cold or too late for them to head outdoors and play. It helps engage their mind in a challenging yet creative way.
You can either leave them to their own devices so they can complete this activity by themselves or help them do it. If you choose the latter, you’ll be able to turn it into an educational activity by teaching them how to draw straight lines and the names of all the colours they pick.
Don’t worry about the drawing appearing scary or disturbing to your child either. Jack Skellington has been a popular character among kids for years. Even if they are a little alarmed by his appearance initially, they’ll soon get over their fears and immerse themselves into this fun activity.
