Looking for engaging Christmas activities for toddlers this holiday season? Check out this comprehensive list of Christmas craft ideas, activities, and more! Your child or student will love these!

Christmas Tree Ornament Craft

This is such an easy Christmas activity and incorporates fine motor skills too! First, take a pipe cleaner and have your child or student thread beads on it. Then create a triangle out of it. Finally, hang it up on a Christmas tree!

Editable Christmas Play-dough

This is easy (yet super sticky so be cautious) and taste safe! Heat up 6 marshmallows and 2 tsp of coconut oil in the microwave. Next, stir in food coloring of your choice  and 4 T of cornstarch. Mix well and poof you have your marshmallow play-dough!

Santa Christmas Craft

This is another great Christmas activity that combines fine motor skills too! Cut out a circle and a red hat. Glue together and add on some eyes and a cherry nose. Next, have your child or student cut the bottom for his fluffy beard. By using scissors this adds an extra element of fine motor development!

I don’t know about you but we sure love gnomes over here! This easy gnome activity takes little supplies. Just paper and cotton balls and a skin color pom-pom.

Paint wooden craft sticks and glue on small pom-poms. This is super easy for your toddlers to complete!

Santa Craft Idea

My toddler is obsessed with Santa so we do a ton of Santa crafts. This one I find comical. Santa is stuck in the chimney! Just use construction paper, glue, and scissors! Then, you can also talk about what would happen next and how to get Santa out of the chimney. It is a great way to incorporate problem solving skills.
