While we were doing tot school at home, we really loved how the holidays eased theme planning, but also made things a lot more fun! Between our own activities and wonderful ideas out there on the web, we wanted to share a quick list of simple Christmas tot school theme ideas!
I never go too far into a post here without acknowledging this blog wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the amazingly thoughtful, and graciously free resources out there. We used many of these Christmas tot school theme ideas among our own activities!

We were nearly a year into tot school the first time Christmas came, and we were sure to celebrate! We started off with a simple set of 6 Easy Christmas Tot Trays! This was cute and appropriate Christmas tot school theme for the busy-ness of the season.
The following year, crafty projects and Christmas tot school theme ideas were on display with our varied set of 13 Christmas Preschool Trays! Naturally we reused many of these ideas and resources the following year as well.
Whether you want to supplement a Christmas tot school theme, simply snuggle up on the couch, or grab a few precious minutes to finish Christmas shopping or wrapping, this list of 12 Little Kids Christmas DVDs may give you some inspiration of festive shows to watch! It’s easy to build a Christmas DVD library that is Netflix-proof!
How about a simple idea for how to countdown the days to Christmas sans chocolate and stuff? The year we were headed out of town for the holidays, we kept things simple with a Pinterest-inspired Santa’s Beard Advent Calendar! Cotton balls and Glue Dots permitted us to bring this calendar on the go, even sticking that last part of his fuzzy beard in line at the airport!
