Crafts with toddlers

IMG_8704

So crafts with a toddler can be a daunting experience but it can be a fun experience too (yes it can) you just have to remember a few tips (they’re very similar to baking with toddlers)

1) If you can, try and set up a few crafts out ready so its all in easy reach

2) Try not to stress . I know it can be tough but if you stress, they will stress and are more likely to have a meltdown

3) Use a wipe down mat, have wipes to hand and have your crafts organised and when they get bored (which wont be long) it should be easy to just pack up and get on with the next toddler activity.

 

We organise our items with this Click box storage from HobbyCraft

It fits just the right amount in for a good craft session with toddlers and it makes packing away quicker and more efficient. We love Hobbycraft and often pick up their craft essentials¬†as they’re a great price and a good selection.

What are your top tips for crafting with a toddler?

  1. I find crafting with my toddlers so stressful – especially my son, but they both really enjoy it so I’ve learnt to take a deep breath and just let them get on with it and deal with the snowstorm of glitter and sequins afterwards (and reward myself for staying sane with a gin later on). We don’t have a handy storage box for our supplies, but that one from Hobby craft looks fab so I think I might have to invest in one!
