Mum and her children making Christmas crafts | Family Christmas - Clair de Lune UK

As the twinkling lights adorn the streets and the scent of cinnamon fills the air, the festive season brings with it an air of magic and wonder. There’s no better way to embrace this joyous time than by creating Christmas crafts with our little ones. Crafting with toddlers isn’t just about creating ornaments; it’s about building memories and cherishing moments that will last a lifetime.

1. Handprint Wreaths

Creating handprint wreaths is a delightful way to adorn your home with personalised decorations. Using green construction paper, trace your toddler’s hand and cut out multiple prints. Arrange these handprints in a circular pattern and secure them with glue to form a wreath shape. Add a red bow or ornaments made from colourful paper to complete the festive look.

2. Salt Dough Ornaments

Toddler Christmas Salt Dough Ornament Craft

Crafting salt dough ornaments is a timeless activity that toddlers adore. Mix one cup of salt, one cup of flour, and half a cup of water to create the dough. Roll it out and use biscuit cutters to shape stars, trees, or gingerbread figures. After baking, let your little one paint these ornaments with vibrant colours.

3. Paper Plate Santa

Transform a simple paper plate into a jolly Santa Claus! Paint the center of the plate in red and the outer rim in white. Add cotton balls for the beard and hat trim, googly eyes, and a construction paper nose and hat. It’s a wonderful way to introduce the concept of Santa while crafting together.

4. Christmas Tree Handprint Cards

Crafting cards is an excellent way to spread cheer to loved ones. Use green paint to stamp your toddler’s handprint on the front of a folded card. Add coloured pom poms and a star sticker for the top of the tree. Let your child decorate the card with stickers or glitter. (The messier the better!)

5. Pine Cone Decorations

Venture outdoors to gather pine cones and turn them into charming decorations. Help your toddler paint the cone in festive colours and sprinkle them with glitter.  Once dry, these pine cones can be displayed in a bowl or hung as ornaments.

Tips for Crafting Success:

  • Supervise with Safety in Mind: Always ensure a safe environment, especially when using scissors, paint, or small craft supplies.
  • Embrace Imperfections: Crafts with toddlers may not look flawless, but they carry the charm of your child’s creativity. Celebrate the uniqueness of each creation.
  • Encourage Creativity: Let your little one take the lead and explore their imagination. It’s not about perfection; it’s about the joy of crafting together.

The Gift of Togetherness

Beyond the finished crafts, the true essence lies in the time spent together. These activities foster bonding, stimulate creativity, and ignite the festive spirit. Cherish the laughter, the messy fingers dipped in paint, and the gleam in your toddler’s eyes as they proudly display their creations.

This year, let’s embrace the simplicity of crafting with toddlers—a fun journey of love, creativity, and cherished moments that define the magic of Christmas.
