Tips for Crafting with Toddlers
Some of my most treasured toddler moments with my daughter were spent crafting together–but that’s not to say that it always went smoothly, haha!
Toddlers have a mind of their own and if you don’t stick to a set schedule, it can be hard to work on a project of any sort. I always planned crafting time around nap and meal times to make sure my little one was well-rested and fed before crafting. It made a huge difference!
Also, set up everything you will need before you start crafting. Whether it’s paints, paintbrushes, scissors, glue, wipes, glitter, water, and paper towel. If you turn your back for even a second you might wind up with a freshly (unintentionally) painted wall.
Work in little spurts, in order to hold their attention. We would take breaks, get cleaned up, and go work on something else–playing or reading. I loved finding short and easy crafts to do with her at this age.
Anticipate the mess and work around it. I always saved (clean) plastic table cloths from my daughter’s birthday parties and laid them underneath the crafting table as well as on the table, and I made sure that she wore old play clothes or a smock. The mess is half the fun, and part of learning skills!
