I always get asked what we used with the printables. And this is an easy to use list to help you find the items.

You can just trace and color the lights. We use a yellow crayon to trace the star and then color the light however we wanted.

Another way is to make a pattern out of the lights. We traced the square and then did an AB pattern with the lights in red and green.

    I love the free Christmas lights traceables. My class had so much fun deciding which colors to use. Thanks Cassie for the wonderful ideas. It’s much more fun than simply tracing lines. Have a wonderful holiday season and a blessed new year. Linda
