Spring! A time for flowers and butterflies and … brightly coloured toddler crafts?
I should mention, for those of you who visit regularly and may be scratching your head — I don’t in fact have a two year old. But I am really holding onto that ‘toddler’ title of this baby of mine. Stretching it right on out through his third year. Why not? I will keep him little just as long as I can.
So these spring crafts are in fact great for two year olds and toddlers of any age …
These are some of the cutest spring crafts for toddlers and great activities to let them begin to explore the world of art. So let’s get the spring crafting started!
