It’s the most wonderful time of the year! If you’re like me, you absolutely love the holidays and can’t wait to get out your Christmas decorations. And while I do like to let my kids (currently 3 and 5) help me decorate our Christmas tree, it can also be fun for them to have a Christmas tree of their own.
Below are some of our favorite Montessori-aligned Christmas trees for kids, as well as a few other favorite Christmas toys.
Large Wooden Stackable Christmas Tree: This Christmas tree has 4 large wooden stackable pieces making it easy to grab with little hands.
3D Wooden Christmas Tree: This tree is a great Montessori practical life sewing toy. It can be folded flat and put into a stocking, or given as a gift. The set comes with different shaped ornaments, including a star for the top of the tree. A rainbow of colored yarn is also included. This toy is wonderful for building fine motor skills, learning to sew, and practicing stitches.
Felt Christmas Tree with Button Ornaments: There are a multitude of felt Christmas trees with stick-on ornaments, but we particularly like this one that helps with the practical life activity of buttoning.
Christmas Tree Fine Motor Toy: This wooden tree has 25 wooden divots and comes with 25 festive red and white wool balls, a wool star topper and bamboo tongs for fine motor work.
3D Felt Christmas Tree with Ornaments: There’s no shortage of felt Christmas trees with ornaments available, but we like this 3D version from Etsy.
Stacking Christmas Tree: We just love this cute stackable Christmas tree from Etsy. The set contains 5 pieces made of silicone.
Hanging Christmas Advent Calendar with Ornaments: This felt calendar has 24 holiday felt ornaments that can be hung on the Christmas tree. Great to hang on a door.
Christmas Nesting Dolls Set: Children typically enjoy nesting activities, and we adore this wooden Christmas nesting dolls set that includes a Santa Claus, snowman, penguin, reindeer, and fox. My 3-year-old was obsessed with my vintage stacking Santas, so this has been a fun activity for her almost every day. Check out this one if you’re looking for a nesting nativity set.
Christmas Lacing Boards: This set of 3 Christmas themed lacing boards includes a Christmas tree, snowman, and gingerbread man. The lacing boards are made of wood and the set comes with 3 ribbons.
Wooden Nativity Set: Though peg dolls are more Waldorf style than Montessori, we love this wooden peg doll nativity set from Etsy. For a more affordable option, check out this one.
