6 Ways to Include Your Toddler This Holiday Season


The holiday season is one of the most wonderful times to be 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 weekend days.

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 love.

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 Apples

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.
