My daughter had so much fun today with this flower garden sticky wall that I had to get the laptop out and type it up as soon as she’d fallen asleep. My kids love sensory play ideas and I do too, it’s so nice to work out some activities for toddlers that have no mess at all, bliss! This activity is great for toddlers and younger kids as there’s loads of learning in it for them, but older kids will enjoy the chance to make something pretty with a different kind of canvas.
We absolutely love contact paper crafts (or sticky back plastic as it’s known here in the UK) it’s a really cheap material to craft with that is great for sensory play or for making things. Last week I shared some seasonal paper plate crafts for every month and that was so popular that I thought I’d do it again this time sharing with you my favourite contact paper crafts, both that we’ve made and from some of my favourite bloggers.
Lately I’ve been wondering what to do in the mornings with my one year old while her brother is at playgroup. She’s dropped her nap and suddenly I’m back in the stage where I’m in desperate need of some activities for toddlers! I can’t sit around the whole time playing with toys so I thought it would be fun to do some kind of craft. Obviously at one it’s all about the experience rather than the finished product but I wanted it to look like ‘something’ if you know what I mean! Sea crafts for kids are perfect for stuff like this as there is no right place to put things and everything is the right way up underwater. This ocean themed toddler art kept her entertained for ages and it kept me busy too!
