Christmas Sensory Play Ideas for Toddlers 

I LOVE Christmas and I love sensory play, which is why I'm super excited to bring you this fabulous collection of Christmas sensory play ideas for toddlers. Our sensory play series has been one of our most popular and I'm just as excited about this one! 


One of the great things about Christmas is that it easily allows us to incorporate a sense of smell to our sensory play. Peppermint, spices and ginger all smell like Christmas and it's easier than you think to incorporate these into sensory play. I like to use essential oils and always keep on hand some of my favorite Christmas scents to add to playdough or water play.

I hope you enjoy this great collection of Christmas sensory play ideas. We also have a great range of Christmas crafts for toddlers that you might also enjoy.
