Keeping a toddler entertained isn’t always the easiest thing so I’m always on the look out for easy activities for toddlers. As a mum of two kids I know that I’ve spent silly amounts of money before on educational toys that my kids couldn’t have cared less about while they have both spent many a happy hour going through the contents of my handbag. Toddler activities don’t need to be complicated though, sensory play ideas always work really well and this cookie cutter rainbow sensory bin has been so popular with my one year old that it’s currently my go-to activity for keeping her happy.

It’s the second week in a row of poor health here in the Crafts on Sea household so I thought I’d take some time out to share some crafts and activities that put a smile on my face! I love rainbow crafts and activities, rainbows are a great way to teach basic science and weather to kids, they work brilliantly as St Patricks Day crafts and also my youngest’s name means Rainbow. What’s not to love about them?!
Need some easy ideas for scissor skills activities?

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 scissor crafts or activities that require using (and therefore practising) scissor skills in a simple and easy way.
