CHRISTMAS TREE TESSELLATION COLORING PAGE
There’s nothing better than taking out the crayons and coloring pencils to let your creativity flow during this wonderful time of year. We have included a Christmas tree tessellation coloring page along with the free printable!
As a tip, when coloring the tessellation page, start by coloring all of the trees that are looking upward in one color, followed by the remaining trees in another color. When it comes to how much creativity should be permitted in this activity, there is no right or wrong answer, so go ahead and color to your heart desire!
