We’re big into fall arts and crafts, and we love creating with our little ones. The best part about these easy crafts for kids is that most of them can be made with things you already have around your house, plus a dash of imagination, of course. So grab your crafting supplies (and maybe some natural elements, too!), and let’s get started.

Tips for Crafting with Toddlers
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!
