What are some fun craft ideas to do with my nearly 3 year old daughter?

My daughter loves crafts. Paints, glitter, glue, you name it. I am running out of ideas and we are getting bored with the same old projects. If anyone has any fun suggestions, I would appreciate it! Thanks!

  • Make old fashioned paper lunch sack puppets. Get some yarn for hair, some funny googlie eyes, felt to cut out mouths and noses and clothes.

  • let her help you make home made finger paints and playdough. or get ivory soap shave it and add some water and you can make soap molds for the family to use! my dd loved that! and you can make suprise soap same thing just make a little well in the middle and put some more on top and when its done a suprise is inside. fun times! the fourth of july is coming up you can get fabric paint and glue and make fourth of july t shirts with her that would be fun!

  • Have you made pet rocks yet? You can find big rocks in creeks. Let your child paint the rock and put on eyes,hair,etc. Another think children love at this age is shaving cream on the kitchen table.It is easy to clean up and it is fun for them!

  • Walmart or any craft store has these foam stickers. REAL cheap! My DD loves to make cards for he family with them (we do mail them out to the people too...which DD loves to do!) or makes pictures for stories (that I will write for her when she is done with the story) OR I make a large sugar cookie and she helps decorate it with whatever kind of sprinkles I happen to have or the icing tubes to write with.
    My DD will be 3 in 2 weeks! Good luck!

  • Trace her body on butcher paper. I got a 1000 ft roll at Sams Club for 20 bucks. That's alot of little bodies! If your daughter can be trusted not to put things in her mouth, buttons are fun. My DD (2) will play with my button jar for hours. Also, you could try making a flannel board. Bothof my girls LOVE this crazy, cheap activity!

    I checked it out and this is a hoax, although I will probably try just because I really want it to work.
