Easy Fall Craft Ideas: Tips for crafting with toddlers

Use objects you can find outside right now – primarily leaves, acorns, and apples – to create your fall arts and crafts!

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 any sort of project. I always planned our 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, or a paper towel. If you turn your back for even a second, you might wind up with a freshly (but 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 any clean plastic table cloths from my daughter’s birthday parties and laid them underneath the crafting table as well as on the table. In addition, I made sure she wore old play clothes or a smock. The mess is half the fun – and part of learning!
