This site has SO MANY Kids crafts that are suitable for Preschool and Toddlers.. I thought it was time to bring them all together BY THEME to help you browse what you are looking for. Crafting with preschoolers is incredibly rewarding – yes, it IS challenging – hands aren’t as nimble, preschoolers have a mind of their own (which is great and to be encouraged) and they are just a wee bit messy… However, with the right project, you can nurture your young child’s imagination and creative and make some wonderful Preschool Craft projects. The aim of these toddler craft ideas, is to help develop skills (e.g. fine motor or colour recognition), nurture creative (let them explore) and above all have quality time and FUN together. Many of these projects can be adapted for the classroom full of 2 and 3yrs olds!!!
Enjoy. I will regularly add to this page – so do pop back.. and I will also try and rotate the collections around, to have the most seasonal / relevant at the beginning. Should an individual project be trending, I will also highlight that for you!! Enjoy!

The under 5s newsletter is ideal for younger children – the crafts are simple, bright and colourful. We make lots of use of recycled materials (who doesn’t love a bit of junk modelling?) such as Toilet Paper Rolls and cardboard boxes. Projects help develop fine motor skills, hand eye co-ordination and listening to instructions (though freedom to create is encouraged). You will find every day projects as well as many seasonal ideas!
