Keep Your Toddler From Playing With Your Expensive Decorations With These Holiday Toys
In my house, glass ornaments dangle from a pine tree, surrounded by hundreds of twinkling lights. Ceramic Santa Claus decorations sit next to sugar cookie-scented candles and glittering reindeer on my shelf. It's the most wonderful time of the year for decorations — until my two toddlers beg to play with everything. At 3 and one-and-a-half years old, they still don't understand why the prettiest, most colorful, most sparkly things in our home aren't for them. That's why I love buying festive holiday-themed toys designed for curious, playful, energetic toddlers.
It's a great way to encourage kids to get into the Christmas or Hanukkah spirit, without breaking anything. They can trim their own felt Christmas trees, decorate an interactive toy gingerbread house, do holiday-themed activities and coloring pages, learn about the nativity and the menorah, or simply play with Santa and his friends at the North Pole. These holiday-themed toddler toys are sure to help spread cheer this season, no matter how you celebrate.
