  • cutting and pasting. just give him some colored paper and let him cut however and past to another sheet. (my son loves this)

    if your brave they love to paint at this age. i get the coloring books that you just use water on. the paint is on the page.

    get some foam stickers, they have them in shapes, alphabet, and numbers and let him stick them to a paper.

    oh and do a web serch for preschool crafts. there are some great site out there with ideas.

  • My 3 year old loves to make these TP roll creations. He colors them. I help him cut. We tape them together. Then, he plays with them.

  • My daughter and I do lots of crafts together, she uses washable paints, markers, I made her some play clay with baking soda and cornstarch, she cut it out with cookie cutters. I have even made her cupcakes, iced them and then let her decorate with the pre made letters, little sugar thingys like hearts or what ever. She loves decorating her cupcakes the most. I keep the little packets from the Kid Cuisine meals that have the candy sprinkles for her to use as well on cupcakes. Who cares what it looks like, it will still taste great.
