*toddler christmas activities*

Even though I despise winter weather, I adore Christmas time.  I can’t get enough of the twinkling lights, Christmas decorations, the smell of pine trees and cinnamon filling the air, and the endless amount of fun you can have with children. Here are a few activities you can squeeze in before the big day.

Christmas Cloud Dough

My son had a blast with the Christmas Cloud Dough. He was pretending to be a “cookie baker”. This recipe feels similar to cookie dough and allows kids to be in control of the Christmas baking. I added more oil than the recipe calls for, so don’t be afraid to play around. The best part is it is made out of ingredients from your pantry.  If your kiddo decides to take a bite, it will not be harmful. So get out your cookie cutters and sprinkles and let your kiddos dig in!

Winter Songs

These Winter Songs are super adorable and super simple!  They take classic kids songs, like The Hokey Pokey, and turn them into fun winter renditions, like The Snowkey Pokey. Most of them have movement incorporated too!
