There are two different pages: one where your child colors the different image and one where your child colors the two images that are the same. For more Christmas themed learning fun, make sure to grab these additional free printables while you’re here on The Artisan Life:
How to use different and the same worksheets
These pages are great for coloring, but your child can also circle their selection or mark it with a manipulative (like a pompom). For an added fine motor challenge, have your child place the manipulative with tongs, like you see in the picture below:
You can make the pages reusable for multiple uses. This is a great choice for classroom centers. You can do this by laminating, using dry erase pockets, or utilizing page protectors.
If you want to use page protectors, I recommend heavy duty “secure” page protectors with a flap to hold the paper inside. Regular, thin page protectors don’t stand up well to repeated use. The heavy duty page protectors can stand up to more enthusiastic use. The flap is also very helpful because it keeps the page from sliding out and getting rumpled or written on.
- Keep contents secure in the protective sleeve with convenient top flap; perfect for holding nonstandard size papers and important items
- Get a crisp, clear view of the contents of your documents with diamond clear page protectors featuring a polished finish for high clarity
- Ensure your documents stay protected with long-lasting super heavyweight sheet protectors for all of your frequently referenced items
I prefer Stabilo Woody 3-in-1 pencils over dry or wet erase markers. There’s no ink and no stink! They also don’t erase themselves as you continue to write or color, which means you can make reusable coloring pages. See this post with dinosaur coloring pages for a video demo.
- The multi-talented pencil, colouring, watercolour and wax crayon all-in-one
- Due to its small chunky shape and size it suitable for childrens hands and allows a fine grip
- High denseness and colour intensity, even on dark paper and glass - it is easy to wipe off ceramic type surfaces
Laminated pages and dry erase pockets cost slightly more and the pages can be harder to organize. They’re also more durable, though, so those are good options for classroom use.

However you decide to prepare the sheets, the basic way of using them is the same. Your child or student looks at the box to determine which image is the different or which pair of images are the same. The selections on the second page are more difficult. Your child will have to play attention to the details!
