Christmas time is here again, and now that December is upon us I am in fully blown panic mode, as well as feel like it is totally acceptable to blog about Christmas crafts and all kinds of wintery and seasonal fun.
I didn’t want to push Christmas stuff in October like all the stores in my local area. Nothing like walking into our Sears in the mall two weeks before Halloween and seeing their entire Christmas shop open!
But this is my favorite time of year! I love the crafts, projects, Christmas lights on houses, and all the magic that comes out in the faces of my kids, even if they don’t fully understand what it is all about.
I think as a parent now the whole Santa and Christmas thing is more acceptable for me to be so into because I have kids of my own.
I wanted to share all these neat toddler craft ideas I found. Some are for older toddlers, some are for younger, but it is a nice mix of different projects to help decorate your home with beautiful crafts your own kiddos worked on!
Because nothing is better than that!
These are adorable and can be ornaments for your tree, or even put in a nice glass jar for a mantel or dinner table decoration.
Christmas Chain Countdown
We make one of these every year, although it has been far less fabulous! This site even includes free printable labels to help make your chain beautiful!

Candy Cane Ornaments
Who doesn't love little pom poms on their Christmas tree? These are super easy to make as well!

Popsicle Stick Christmas Trees
I made these as a kid, so these are a must make for Christmas in my house, even if they all don't make it onto our tree.

Frosty The Snowman
An adorable and wintery idea, not just for Christmas. Because who doesn't love snowmen during the winter? Heck, I think it's the only highlight of the snow!

Popsicle Stick Standing Christmas Trees
I love these ideas! While to get them nice and perfect looking in the picture you are going to have to decorate them, but having your little one help with painting and assembly will make for a fun project!

Hand Print Tree
Another great way to watch your kids grow annually! A tree made out of their hand prints, and all you need is paint and a canvas!

Foot Print Tree
Popsicle Stick Characters
Another one you will have to help your toddler with, but it could be hours of fun making different characters, dressing them, and mixing and matching the accessories.

Hand Print Wreath
Another great idea! Some paint, a canvas or just paper, and a bow and you are in business!
