Open-Ended Toddler Christmas Art Activities

paint project

The holiday season is here and you’re looking for kids’ Christmas activities! But your tot is too young to join in with the serious crafting. Your toddler can still get artsy this holiday. If you’re not sure where to start, check out these easy open-ended Christmas art ideas for toddlers and young preschoolers.

Color Mixing 

Start with the three primary colors — red, blue and yellow. Separate the red out, your child will use this color on its own. Now it’s time to make green paint to go with the Christmas theme. Give your tot a thick paintbrush, pour a pool of blue tempera paint next to a pool of yellow (use a paper plate or a thick piece of cardboard as a palette). Your child can mix the colors, making green!

Finger Paint

After mixing colors your child has Christmas-time red and green to work with. Spread a large piece of poster board or unravel plain white gift wrap. Invite your creative kiddo to finger paint with the red and green hues, designing their own holiday abstract art.

Clay Paint

If you’re looking for a not-so-messy art activity, this is perfect for toddlers. Give your child red and green modeling clay. Break the clay into dime-sized pieces. Your child can ‘finger paint’ (move the clay in a finger painting motion) with the clay on cardboard or another thick paper.
