The holiday season is here and our family, like many others in the country, are celebrating winter break. This means no school. If you homeschool, you might also be taking some time off to relax and just enjoy the season. That also means you have children home with an upset routine. There will probably be boredom and there will probably be times they ask you to help entertain them. A good way to fill those empty spaces or times of boredom is with crafts and games.
While there are plenty of crafts and activities to be had for older children, it can sometimes be difficult to find something suitable for younger children. Toddlers have a shorter attention span and they are not yet skilled enough for more difficult tasks. You need something that is simple enough, but also still fun.
Spending time with the kids during this special time of year is magical but toddlers can get bored sitting around all day with nothing much to do. Thankfully, you do have other options. Instead of sitting around, you can have fun and encourage creativity by doing crafts with your toddler like the ones on Babble.com.
It keeps them busy and entertained and it’s a great way to bond with your child. Both of you will have a great time and making a mess is part of the fun. One of the great craft ideas you’ll find here is a child size felt Christmas tree that hangs on the wall. Your child will have a ball decorating it over and over again. Other ideas include a countdown to Christmas board, tinsel-covered ornaments, and footprint reindeer. You can even make some of them to give as gifts for the rest of the family. After all, homemade gifts are some of the best.
