My Easy Peasy posts are usually about recipes for toddlers but this week I am featuring a holiday craft! This year I wanted to start a holiday tradition with my 13-month old where we create a special Christmas craft each year. He is still pretty little so trying to figure out a craft that he would be able to help with was a bit of a challenge. After a little thought and some digging around online for inspiration, I decided that this year we would make a Christmas wreath craft with fingerpaint.
Easy Peasy Toddler Christmas Wreath Craft
- Paper plate
- Non-toxic, baby-friendly fingerpaint (we used My First Crayola Fingerpaint)
- Cut a hole out of the center of the paper plate
2. Using multiple loops of tape, attach paper plate to surface the child will be painting on (I put our’s on my son’s high chair) and place three globs of paint in the center of the wreath.
3. Let your kid go to town smushing around the paint. Add more paint as needed.
4. After your child has finished painting, lay the wreath on a flat surface to dry.
5. Now hang that beautiful piece of art on your Christmas tree for everyone to see your artistic child’s masterpiece!
