2 year old
what are some fun crafts that I could do with my two year old? I was able to think up a ton to do with my 6 year old, but struggle to find something that doesn't take very long but is fun
were you thinking about any type of craft in particular?
using paint to make handprints, then using the handprints to make a piece of wall art?
My 2 y/o nephew isn't into much in the way of making stuff 'cause he doesn't really get it, but he liked when I made playdough for him. He didn't really do much, so I just rolled it into small balls and like, poked at it and gave him different colored beans to press into them. You can also buy fabric crayons at the craft store that you just color onto any piece of paper, and you can iron the pictures onto fabric. You can have your 2 y/o make his own tee or whatever with scribbly images. I really just like, make simple things 'cause he likes to watch and I'll like, give him something to sort of attach or whatever to give him the illusion he's helping (then I fix it, lolz). Same with baking. I'll like, measure stuff out and put it into a bigger measuring cup for him to dump into the bowl. I'm hella waiting until he's older so we can have more fun. Hope you find something fun!
how about making some bubbles you could even do it in a paddling pool and use a hola hop to make a large bubble that could go right over him.
make playdough that you can eat
how about bath crayons he can draw on the bath and him self then wash it all off
make a tent using a clothes horse and blankets then you could have an indoor picnic
make a rocket, car or bus from some large boxes you guys could make tickets and find stories or songs to go with them
agree with the fabric pens, my daughter loves makin t-shirts etc for people also baking is good if you get them to do the mixing and tipping stuffin the bowl.
Making cards for peoples' birthdays i always find fun. give them some card and different coloured wool and buttons to stick on and pens to draw on it. Or something simple like painting stones...they're great as random decorations when they're done too
Thanks for all the idea's they're great! I can't wait to get started crafting with my son
a couple more ideas.
gluing down different things is always a hit. do 1/2 and 1/2 glue and paint and not only can you glue stuff but it dries shiny.
i have some great ATC's that a swappers children helped her maker they are some of my fav's . if your children want to help you as part of are ATC swap that would be fun .
shaving foam painting is always fun to do at any age
