Amelia loves colouring in and drawing with her crayons, its one of her favourite activities to do. Every morning we get up, have breakfast watch some cartoons and then get dressed and do some drawings before lunch time. It's sort of become as a routine now if you like. She loves it and its amazing to see the excitement in her face when I reach for the paper and crayons off the shelf.
It got me thinking to go out and purchase some art supplies which are suitable for children. I love getting crafty and creative and have done numerous DIY's for Amelia's nursery and around the house this past year. However, it would be great if Amelia and I could sit down and do some crafts together. I know over the years as she grows we will be able to do this I just thought it would be nice to start now while she is still a toddler. Therefore I have been looking on the internet for toddler craft ideas and have found quite a few I think would be perfect!
I have put together a list of activities to complete which include salt painting, homemade play dough, handprint drawings, wooden block prints, DIY hanging chalk board, bubble wrap painting, bubble painting, and I have been pinning like crazy on Pinterest too! There's so many activities to do which will hopefully keep Amelia entertained for a couple of hours a day. She's now at the age where toys simply won't keep her attention for longer than 5 minutes and she want's to run around like a crazy toddler! At least with some activities and crafts she will sit down. That reminds me I need to buy a little table and chair set too!
What crafty activities have you done with your toddler?
