Crafts for toddlers, all too often, don’t amount to much more than doodles, cereal jewelry, trinkets, and stuff doused in glitter. I am all for creating art and crafting, but let’s be honest: A lot of these toddler crafts aren’t worth saving (there’s just no space!). And, even worse, the papers and other projects pile up like crazy.
So I’ve been on a mission to find new crafts for toddlers — projects that are actually worth keeping. And I’ve been amazed by what I’ve discovered. Here, I’ve rounded up some crafts for toddlers that double as wall decor, decorative objects, and more. You will love these ideas, and your toddlers will love them even more.
