Toddler craft ideas I want to try

I've spent the evening looking for ideas of toddler freindly crafts. Chubs has just started to 'do' crafty things - she can stab at paper with a felt pen and has brought home a sponge painting from daycare. I've bee looking for craft ideas that she can do - obviously with my help in many cases. Here's a list of what I want to try.

I'm very exciting about doing a hand print alphabet. I don't think we'll use many of these particular pictures, but I love the idea. I want to put them all together in a frame that she can keep.

I've been thinking about something we can do for the Giggle Gallery, not sure yet but I'm thinking about a few things. Speaking of ABC Kids, Chubs loves Raa Raa (as I spoke of before) and I love the idea of doing this lion craft.

I want to make a banner for the wall that says something like 'Look what I made today' that we can put on the wall, so I can stick her painting and other crafts below it.

I've seen coffee filter butterflies in a few places, but I'm formulating a new design. Watch this space!

I want to make some Christmas bunting and some fabric paper chains for Christmas presents. I love this Christmas tree decoration idea and I think I'll do it for Christmas presents this year.

Chubs isn't quite up to this, but how great do monster feet look. I must get her Where The Wild Things Are too - she doesn't have a copy and it is a beautiful story.

I've not done any needle felting before and Chubs is probably beyone the ball-rattle phase, but this would be a good nap time project for me. It wouldn't involve getting the sewing machine and all associated paraphenalia out, which is a good thing. Speaking of nap time projects, I'm thinking of making some simple felt finger puppets for Chubs and for gifts. I promise photos!

I'm making some crayons now for a craft stall, I'll post those photos too soon.

  2. I love toddler craft ideas! Mainly, I think it's funny trying to get toddlers to do crafts! But I am such a sucker for little handprints or little footprints!
