Art projects for toddlers
May 172014
 

I love thinking of new art projects for my toddler. She loves to create art! And coloring with crayons gets old really quickly!

I will be showcasing a number of different arts & crafts projects here that are geared toward toddlers, preschoolers and younger children. These are perfect for a rainy day when you want to keep the little one entertained indoors! There are three different projects featured here in this post: the butterfly punch, the washi tape heart and the oil dropper painting.
