If you have a busy toddler, you know it can be hard to help them sit still. It’s something you learn again and again. If you are looking for something productive and fun for them to do we have made some seasonal activities for you child! Toddler school helps them learn through play. Toddler trays are a great way to keep their interest and learn about the world around them.

Making themed toddler trays for the seasons is extremely fun. We have 12 toddler trays, feel free to put them on low bookshelves or somewhere easy for your toddler to reach. These trays are winter themed, there are 12 trays and are great to have out for a couple weeks. This is my first toddler tray and I hope to do more for all of you. It will be fun to see how these go!

Snowflake Glitter Craft

What You Need

How to Play

Draw a snowflake design with the white crayon on the black paper. You can have your toddler glue over the lines you draw, but they may not be able to do that. Just let them glue the way the want. Then help them sprinkle glitter over the glue. When the glue dries, pour the extra glitter off of the page.
