A few easy crafts for toddlers include paper bag faces, popcorn pictures and cloud collages. Toddlers can also have fun making a caterpillar picture using an apple stamp.
To make paper bag faces, find old magazines or newspapers for the toddler to tear up, crumple and stuff into a paper bag. Once the bag is full, seal it with a rubber band and allow the toddler to paint a happy face on it. The toddler can then play with the filled bag.
For a popcorn picture, gather colorful construction paper, popped popcorn and a glue stick; the toddler can then rub the glue on the paper and stick popcorn to it to create a collage or image. Shake the popcorn in a paper bag along with tempera paint powder to create different colors for flower pictures.
To make a cloud collage, the toddler can glue strips of blue paper in different shades onto a blue backing. Next, he can glue clumps of cotton wool buds onto the collage to form clouds.
For an apple caterpillar picture, cut an apple in half and blot out excess moisture on a tea towel. The child can then dip it in paint, stamp it onto construction paper in a sequential pattern, and draw a face and legs for the caterpillar.
