Little kids can help with so much during the holiday season. It takes a little creativity to guide them, but these learning ideas will give you some ideas. I recently chatted with Vicki Bentley, an educational consultant for Homeschool Legal Defense Association. We shared all about the learning that takes place during the holiday planning and preparations. You can view our chat to get some holiday learning ideas for little kids so they can experience the holiday season and you can make memories as a family.

Holiday Learning Activities for Little Kids

In our live video, Ms. Bentley and I discussed how we can simplify the holidays so that we are focusing on intentional time together rather than the kids always being in our way. Yes, it can be stressful to plan for holiday events, but when we slow down and enjoy each small experience with our toddlers and preschoolers, the stress level decreases. We can make memories as a family even in the small holiday prep activities.

These holiday learning ideas for little kids are easily already part of your days. We give you simple hands-on sensory ideas that you are probably already doing and just didn’t know it. There are great holiday book mentions. Plus, view the replay for the main takeaways that have nothing to do with adding more to your plate this holiday season.

This season is about family time, giving, and cherishing the true gift of Christmas. I hope the video chat gave you some ideas and reassured you that you are doing enough!
