What kind of crafts would my 3 y/o daughter enjoy?

I am not very crafty but want to make some fall crafts with her. I was thinking maybe some leaf rubs? I need some creative inspiration that is age appropriate. Thanks in advance!!

  • We made ghosts today! My 3 year old daughter loved it!!! She loves painting and drawing too! We also made pumpkins out of orange yarn and paper bowls! We also go to the park and see how many different leaves we can find then press them in a journal! It is always fun to go back and look at them! Or a pine cone project would be fun! Mask making Or paper mache! My daughter loves paper mache!

  • My 3 y/o daughter loves making beaded jewelrey. coloring, painting. Finger painting would be great. We have made rainbow rice. You put rice in a zip lock and add food coloring, smush around to color it all, and dry on a cookie sheet. Very cute. We have also done paper plate masks, Great thing to do is go to the dollar store and get constuction paper, glue,glitter, pipe cleaner, googly eyes,paper plates.... any thing like that they have. just ask what she wants to make. Lots of fun!

  • I have a 2 y/o who loves to finger paint. Try making homemade finger paint with your daughter- then it will be more special!

  • this time of year is great for painting pumpkins or making stamping pics out of leaves I also love to grab a bowl and spoon and mix up random things with the kids on snowy or cold days just to see what kinda craziness we can come up with
