Crafts for Preschoolers and Toddlers

Browse through this list of prechool crafts and toddler crafts


Here some fun preschool crafts to try. Toddlers and preschoolers like working with clay, coloring, and painting. You will be amazed at how much they can do once you start introducing them to various craft items. While I give the age suggestion of '3 and under' for these crafts, the best judge as to whether your child can handle these crafts or not is you. Your goal is to have them enjoy themselves without getting frustrated. If you have a more mature 3-year-old, you might also want to check out craft projects for pre-k and kindergartners. For more fun with your toddler or preschooler, check out these craft kits.
