Have a 1 or two year old? Looking for arts and crafts ideas? This post has you covered!
If you have a one or two year old, you know how hard it is to find age-appropriate craft activities.
While your little one is so curious, and wants to explore the world around him, a lot of art activities just aren’t yet appropriate for his age and developmental stage.
To help with this, I’ve compiled a list of easy and age-appropriate crafts for your 1 year old! These ideas can also be used with older children, as well!
