How To Explain The Meaning Of Christmas To Your Toddler

How To Explain The Meaning Of Christmas To Your Toddler

In the middle of March I wrote a super successful post about the history and origin of St. Patrick’s day. I wanted to research it because honestly I didn’t know anything about it. Yet I was dressing Morgan in green head to toe! That post ended up launching a series of posts after I received multiple comments to create a post for each holiday. I will have to explain each holiday to Morgan anyway. What a better way than to actually learn the facts behind them. You can read all of my past posts below:

  1. St. Patrick’s Day
  2. Easter
  3. Mother’s Day
  4. Memorial Day
  5. Father’s Day
  6. Fourth of July
  7. Labor Day
  8. Halloween
  9. Thanksgiving

I learn so much from doing these posts, and I find that I really enjoy researching and writing them. Today I will be sharing with you How To Explain The Meaning Of Christmas To Your Toddler.

Because I am so easy to please gift wise I started to think about how I was going to shop for my babies this holiday season. Morgan is almost two now so she will be much more aware of Christmas.

The more I brainstormed and the more I sent family members gift wish lists, I realized every item on the list was under $25. How can that be? Well it’s quite simple. Toddlers love what they love, and they don’t need elaborate things to make them happy. Morgan’s favorite toy to date is a matching game that my sister bought for her from the Target dollar section. A close second is an Amazon box and a crayon. She’s extremely easy to please.

However with the holidays coming up I do want to get her something special. I am listing below items that I have sent family members as our gift wish list: 7 Of The Best Under $25 Toddler Gifts.
