Because this is such a big list I’ve divided it into three sections, Christmas crafts for toddlers, Christmas sensory activities for toddlers and easy Christmas activities for toddlers, over the last year this post has grown bigger as I’ve found even more fun ideas to share with you so while it was originally around 60 ideas I’ve added some more to each section to make it an even better resource for you.

Christmas Craft Kits for Toddlers

As much as I love creating Christmas crafts to do with my kids I also like buying the occasional kit – sometimes it’s good to make sure you have all the things you need ready without having to worry that you’ll need to do fifteen trips to your local craft store! Some of my  favourites are this sweet kit from Melissa and Doug, this amazing felt tree and this build a snowman kit.

Christmas Books for Toddlers
