Spring Crafts for Toddlers Crafts
In this round up you’ll find loads of springtime crafts for one, two and three year olds including ones that I’ve made with my kids and ones from some of my favourite other bloggers.
Obviously there can be a lot of difference between what a child who has just turned one and a child who has just turned three or preschooler can do (and a lot of difference between kids the same age!) so take a look through the list and find the ideas that you think your child will enjoy the most, after all no one knows your child like you do!
While these crafts are aimed at toddlers you’ll also find some included that are good for older kids too. My daughter made some of these when she was in but she still has a blast making now she’s older, so if you have kids of different ages at home there should be some ideas that you can try just grab your construction paper, markers and googly eyes and get ready to have some fun!
