Do you like to keep it simple and make your own toddler crafts at home? We have a counting game and playdough using household ingredients. You do not need to have all the fancy tools and gadgets to create little Picasso’s.
Give a box of crafts as a gift to a newborn baby instead of clothes, because most Moms will need craft supplies eventually, and it’s great to have all these things ready to go.
Most toddler crafts will last for years, so grab them while they are on sale well before you need them, this way they won’t cost too much, because we all love to save money and not to mention the convenience.

Playing is serious business for kids

toddler-crafts-playdoughIt’s normal for toddlers to have a very short attention span. Moms and Dads offering a 2 year old an activity are sometimes challenged to keep them captivated. When we are doing activities with kids they are best done in a quiet environment, avoid multitasking and rushing your little one through the activities. Keep the task simple but interesting, rotating indoor to outdoor activities is a good idea as well.

The recipe and a video for a fantastic no cook playdough is below.
