Toddler Crafts and Activities

The toddler years are one of my favourite years to get crafty and creative with kids. It's also a great time to start to introduce a little learning in a fun and playful way.

Pinterest is full of ideas but when you get down and start to try them with your toddlers you may find like we did back in 2011 how the expectations from the images used are well beyond what a toddler will achieve.
Since 2011 we have been trying out these toddler activities and crafts with our own kids, those borrowed from friends and sending out ideas for some of our readers to try with their toddlers to to check that the ideas work with those starting to walk through to 3 year olds.
