What kind of crafts do you do with your 2 year old?

I was just wondering what kinds of crafts you do with your child cause all I can think of is coloring, stamping, putting stickers in a book and playing with play-doh. Is there anything else?

  • Don't know if you have it but there's this great channel called Baby first tv. If you don't you can find it online. That channel is great. It shows lots of crafts and stuff that can get kids involved like making crafts with cereal and stuff, really inventive and fun stuff.. Check it out.

  • I tend to avoid it at home just because crafts aren't my thing, however, we go to an early years centre and we do gluing, cutting with scissors (although that's a developing skill) and painting on top of what you've already listed.

  • I made cut out sugar cookies and used food dye and powder sugar to make paint and let my kids have a ball, sometimes we made X-mass ornaments out of them.

Go to your local craft store and should have lots of ideas to choose from. Also mag and website family fun mag. by disney as lots of crafts and games and things to keep kids busy.
