We love sharing crafts for toddlers when we can and with it’s bright colours and fantastic food Chinese New Year is a fun way to teach kids about other cultures. These easy with simple dragon crafts and lantern crafts theseĀ Chinese New Year crafts for toddlers are a great way to make sure that all ages can join in with the celebrations.

It’s all about what you love right?! This unicorn paper plate Valentines craft is super easy to make and looks great – a winner round our house.

Just like using a knife and fork or holding a pencil, using a pair of scissors is one of those things that kids just have to learn to do at some point, but like most things to do with kids it’s a lot better for everyone involved if you can do it in a fun way! My kids were never big fans of worksheets and to be honest I’m not either, I don’t think I’m alone in admitting that I prefer to do activities with my kids that I can enjoy a bit too? Some of these activities have been created for encouraging scissor skills while others are crafts or activities that require using (and therefore practising) scissor skills in a simple and easy way. Hopefully they’ll all bring a bit more fun for you and your kids to getting those scissor skills perfected!

This easy flower scissor skills activity is really quick to set up and uses materials you’re likely to already have at home – always a good thing! Scissor skills are a really important skill to learn but I know that my kids have never been interested in anything worksheet based – this cute craft makes learning a skill more interesting and it would be easy to adapt as a craft for Mothers Day or to make as a card too.
