Christmas Activities for Toddlers:

Be sure to click the colored links below to see the full tutorial:

Top row:

  • Christmas Pom Pom Drop Is a simple activity that adds a touch of fine motor skills. You could customize this with different pictures too. Change it up to snowmen, a gingerbread man or any holiday item with dots. You can use cotton balls instead of pom poms too.
  • Christmas Colors Toddler Activity lets your toddlers and older kids decorate a paper tree with Christmas ornaments.
  • You can make an easy Christmas Sensory Bin with Christmas decorations you have on hand such as garland and tree ornaments.
  • DIY Christmas Puzzle will keep your toddler busy for ages.

Second row:

  • Holiday Lacing Cards are simple kids crafts that can be done with a wide range of ages. This one shows a paper Christmas tree but I think it would be cute with a green paper plate, like a wreath.
  • Simple Christmas Ice Star Science Experiment is a fun sensory experience AND science wrapped into one! That website, toddler approved has tons of other fun Christmas activities to do with young kids. I do like that this one uses a little pinch of cake sparkles instead of glitter so it is a taste safe Christmas activity.
  • Ornament Memory Game and Sorting is easy peasy to set up, and a great activity for a younger tot who is excited about decorating.
  • Painting with Christmas Tree Branches is not your ordinary Christmas tree craft- this one actually uses the tree to make the craft!

Third row:

Fourth row:

Bottom row:

  • Peppermint Epsom Salt Sensory Play is a fun sensory experience with a festive scent. I love how she added cookie cutters. Keep the mess at bay by making it in a plastic tote and playing on a plastic tablecloth.
  • Christmas Tree Felt Board is basically a gorgeous felt Christmas tree that your kids can decorate over and over. This would be a great DIY gift too.
  • This Christmas Tree Toddler Game uses those colorful applesauce pouch lids. What a fun use for them!
  • Make this Christmas I-Spy Bottle for your kiddos and if you hot glue it shut, it s a great on-the-go Christmas activity. You could use a clear soda bottle or any small plastic bottle.
