Looking for busy box ideas or fine motor task boxes that are Christmas themed? Try this super simple Christmas busy box!

My kids have been enjoying lots of activities using a container of jingle bells. We've used them for threading, a STEM activity, some mirror play, and even added them to a sparkly sensory bin

But then I remembered this fine motor toddler busy box and decided to give it a Christmas spin!

This jingle bell busy box idea requires zero prep, but is tons of fun for toddlers and preschoolers.

This Busy Box Idea Makes a Great Fine Motor Task Box!

Opening and closing the empty wipes container is great fine motor practice, as is putting those jingle bells into the small hole in the container. Three year old K loved to fill the wipes container up with the jingle bells and then violently shake the container. It offered great auditory input!
