Toddler craft ideas - Christmas?

9 replies

Would post in Arts and Crafts but thought would get better response here.

My nephew was 2 in June and he's very good with crafts, does a lot with his DF (dad).

Was trying to get ideas for Christmas crafts or kits to get him but most say for 36 months due to choking risk.

Anyone got great ideas, especially decorations etc he could do? thanks

I have a 2 year old, don't worry about the 36+ months his dad can just take out the bits he can't have and/or supervise ๐Ÿ˜Š

violetclouds thanks! I don't want him to choke on something and I'm blamed LOL.

His dad is very good at supervision.

the funny thing at weekend on facetime was DNephew playing with train set and keeps on running over the driver/man on the track - we were all Shock. he then kept on doing it of course

Those paper link chain things? Gingerbread? Popcorn dyed red on a string? Salt dough decorations?
Iโ€™d agree with PP though that the 36 month rule is balls.

Yes - thanks for the ideas. He did gingerbread men with me when we were allowed to see each other last month.

thanks for the reassurance re 36 month rules too.

This kid is a very advanced (health visitor says so) and not stupid 28 month old! Smile

Painting with hands etc. I put etc as my kids like to paint with whatever they could get paint on! You can buy thicker finger painting paint which is good for this. B and M sell a good mixed pack of paint brushes and sponges and also paper. IKEA drawing paper on a roll is brilliant and if you want to splash out my kids loved their plastic easel as they could stand up to paint.

Cut out paper doll chains on brown paper and then let them decorate them to look like ginger bread men.
