Making Christmas Crafts for Toddlers memorable

I always take a few minutes to walk down memory lane each year when I open our holiday boxes. We don’t save all of our DIY projects but seeing what we have made over the years always brings a smile to my face!

This is a great time to work with younger kids on noticing colors and shapes while also sharing the stories behind the ones you have kept year after year.  Some things to do are listed below to help prompt you for your holiday sharing time.

  • Share the story of what makes an ornament sentimental
  • Tell your kids about your own childhood crafting
  • Invite your parents to share their own memories of you creating ornaments for them
  • Share stories about Santa Clause if your family celebrates

Before you get started with these, take some time to browse around Amazon for other cool Christmas craft kit ideas.  There are tons of options to make!

Grabbing a few extra kits like those can make your time easier to manage. Especially if you are like us and travel around the holidays.

Kits keep things together and easy to pack for a holiday road trip.
