alive. We are able to spend time with those we love, enjoy the beauty of the
falling leaves and blanketing snow, and even take part in winter walks on brisk
But for your toddler, these things that excite you may leave
them cold and confused in this cold season. To make sure they enjoy the
holidays then, try these six simple toddler activities to get them involved with
you and the family.
1. Head to a Farm
Traveling to a farm during the colder months is a delightful
and romantic way to spend a day with your family. You can walk around and sip
on hot cider with your spouse, while your kids play in the straw, and even gawk
at the animals walking around. For a great toddler activity, see if you can get
a ride through the fields on a tractor, a holiday activity they are sure to
2. Fun in the Snow
Even if you want to enjoy the outdoors, there is little
chance your toddler will want to brave the chilly temperatures without a fun
holiday activity to keep them occupied. To make sure the kids play together,
start a few toddler activities as a family, such as building snowmen, hiding in
a snow fort, or even tracking animals in the snow.
3. Bake Cookies
What toddler doesn’t love to eat delicious cookies fresh
from the oven? Have some fun with this holiday activity by baking cookies as a
family, and enjoying their crunch right out of the oven. It allows you to spend
time as family, and lets the kids play with the dough in the kitchen.
4. Make Caramel
This is another fun toddler activity that helps you create a
delicious treat. Use the stove to double-boil a batch of caramel, insert long
wooden sticks into a few green apples, and supervise your toddler as they dip
it into the mixture. You can let them have their own after the holiday activity
is over, or even donate them to friends and family members that you love.
5. Pillow Forts
If your little ones don’t want to go outside into the cold,
bring the fun indoors by building a fun pillow and blanket fort in the living
room. This toddler activity is simple and interactive, and will challenge them
to think of different structures and shapes to build.
6. Check Out the Zoo
Though the zoo is most popular during the warmer months,
often times local zoos will host winter exhibitions indoors with the animals. Additionally,
many zoo administrators set up light shows that can be seen after dark, making
a trip there a wonderful holiday activity for the whole family.
