Because there are so many ideas that I’m sharing today as well as an overall list of crafts I’ve added a couple of subheadings with collages for Christmas tree crafts for toddlers and Christmas ornaments toddlers can make to hopefully make this a bit easier to navigate. At the end of the post you’ll also find some of our favourite Christmas books for toddlers (because who doesn’t love a Christmas story and a snuggle?!) and some more of our favourite crafts and activities for toddlers.

I’ve titled this 32 Christmas crafts for kids for now but I’ll be adding more ideas to them as we approach the big day. Want to make sure you don’t forget any of these fantastic ideas? Make sure you bookmark this page or pin an image so you’ve got all of them to hand when you need them most!

We made these paper plate snowflakes when my daughter was a toddler and we made some more at the weekend as she still loves making them now!

These stained glass lanterns are totally toddler friendly and look great with a LED light in them.

This paper bag Santa craft would make a fun puppet to play with too.

Older toddlers will be able to practice scissor skills to cut out the nose for this paper bag reindeer craft while younger ones will enjoy sticking the shapes down.]

If you’ve had many parcels arrive before Christmas then this bubble wrap snowman craft is a great way to use up any bubble wrap.

This paper plate snowflake twirler is a nice one for toddlers to play with and to keep it very simple you could always keep the plate white and just add stickers.

Use your paper plates in a different way to make this snowflake wreath craft, younger kids will need help to make the snowflake but you could adapt the craft to add some Christmas themed stickers on too!
