What you need: 



What to do:

  1. This activity couldn’t be easier! I arranged a selection of the Christmas stickers, handed out the cards and they stuck the stickers wherever they liked. 
  2. For the younger toddlers try to use bigger stickers. I prefer the raised foam stickers as they are easier for little fingers.

Ornaments

What you need: 
  • Plain colored Christmas Baubles (we used a mix of matte, glitter and shiny ones)
  • Sticky sequins – make sure you get the sticker version. Gluing on regular sequins is way to hard for a toddler and they don’t stick very well either.


What to do:

  1. Stick the sequins onto the baubles – try to encourage your toddler to space them out a little big.
  2. Hang on your tree or wrap up as a gift.





A lovely board book to accompany this craft is With Love, From Me to You, by Mary Manz Simon. With Love, From Me to You is a board book for little ones that will remind them how important it is to love and be loved. With adorable illustrations and sweet, rhyming text by bestselling author Dr. Mary Manz Simon, this book shows children how important their actions and words are in expressing God’s great love with one another. Parents will enjoy reading this book on Valentine’s Day or any day of the year to encourage their children to remember that love is more than gifts and candy; it’s about doing for others and sending love to everyone who’s near.


"A red heart sends a message that says 'I so love you,' but we can send those same words in what we say and do."  This is a line, and the main theme, of this beautifully-illustrated book that is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers.  Young ones, who are just beginning to read, will be able to quickly memorize the rhymes and 'read' it alongside you.  The book is wonderful for Christmas or Valentine's Day, and will become one of your family's favorite read-alouds or bedtime books!
