Does the weather have you down and out? It’s been so incredibly cold and blustery for weeks now, leaving us stuck inside the house, unable to venture into the great outdoors.
My 5-year-old and 7-year-old daughters have a routine when they get home from school. After all of their homework is completed, they choose from the huge selection of free downloadable “Frozen” colouring pages online and print them off. This morning, it occurred to me that there must be similar pages for toddlers, so of course I headed to my favourite DIY site – Spoonful.com.
What I found was a plethora of activities and printable pages (all free) that were suited for children of all ages. Some are definitely more suited for the older children, but they have a great selection for tots!
Here are 5 of my favourite printables for toddlers that are sure to cure the winter blues for at least a little while.

Let’s be honest — it’s really cold outside. Especially if you are residing here with me on the East Coast. I haven’t left the house in days because it’s so much work to bundle up my brood. That said, we’ve found plenty of options to keep busy. If you are stuck home with a toddler during the winter months — I’ve got some great ideas for you to keep them busy on the chilliest of days!

The Chinese New Year begins on January 31st and there’s still plenty of time to get your decorations in order to celebrate the Year of the Horse with your little one! At our home, we’ll be celebrating a little early this year, by heading to a Japanese Lunar New Year celebration at the Boston Children’s Museum this weekend; Japan also recognizes the Chinese Zodiac associated with the New Year. To celebrate, we’ve been printing out decorations to teach Judah about the Chinese New Year, its traditions, and the symbolism of the Year of the Horse.
Here is my round up of some truly lovely Chinese New Year printables from around the web – all for free!
