Part of our yearly Christmas traditions is spending Christmas Eve singing carols together as an extended family. Years and years ago, my mom made each member of our family a printable Christmas Songbook.
It was perfect to have a book for each family member so we could sign along and participate. Over the years, we’ve slowly lost our books and we’ve also realized which songs our family always skips past.
I decided it was time to create my own free pdf printable Christmas Songbook! That way, I would always have a copy of the book easy to print when we inevitably lose our copies or for when our family grows in size.
The 12 Kids favorite songs coordinate with a smaller Christmas Songs for Kids songbook I created last year with the same page numbers. The kids Christmas songbook has coloring images on most the pages and keeps kids interested and involved.
The free printable songbook is set up to easily print front to back. If you are able to print both pages front to back with your printer, just open the document and it’s ready to print! Place a sheet of colored cardstock at the top of your paper tray to print your cover with a firm more protected paper.
If you can’t print front to back, print all the odd pages, then reload your printer tray with the printed pages paying attention to which side and direction your printer prints from. Print the even pages, allowing them to print to the back of your odd pages.
After your pages have printed, leave them in the order they print, and quickly flip through to ensure your pages are still in the correct order. Then, just stack all the pages, crease down the center, and staple at the edge.

We also have another free printable, our Kids songbook, which includes just the first 12 songs of the adult songbook. For kids with short attention spans you can start with the fun kid songs, then continue through the rest of the songbook. The kids songbook even has coloring spots on the pages to keep them entertained. Head over here to grab that printable songbook.
Do you ever fret about printing out projects like this? Since we use HP’s Instant Ink service, it was no big deal to print out 10 copies of the 20-page songbook for each of my family members to have a copy.
Had I tried to print that many pages at once before I joined Instant Ink, I almost certainly would have run out of ink in the middle of the printing job. I’ve been using Instant Ink for 4 or 5 months now, and absolutely depend on it!
I’m never out of ink because as soon as my cartridge starts to run low, my printer automatically alerts the Instant Ink service through the connected web services and a new cartridge gets mailed out to me.
I don’t have to rush out to the store, hunt for ink deals, or miss out on printing important papers from lack of ink. When I get my new cartridges, I just pop the old used ones back in a prepaid mailer and they are recycled for me!
I absolutely recommend Instant Ink to save you time, money, and hassle with printing. This service does require a compatible HP printer to join, with a range of printers available in the line to choose from. You can start with a FREE month of service to try out Instant Ink using my referral link.
