Children love making kids crafts. It’s such a great way to really allow them to get creative and express their imagination. Plus, crafting is great fine motor work! These Fall crafts for 2 year olds to make are great as children start to emerge from the baby phase and enjoy crafting.
Fall Crafts for 2 Year Olds
When I think of fall crafts, I picture pumpkins, apples, leaves, acorns and turkeys.
2 year olds are able to use markers, paint and glue to craft and create. This age loves to get messy and creative as they pride themselves in independent work.
These fall crafts are great for 2 year olds as they use larger parts and allow for creative freedom. When crafting with this age group, feel free to give them a general idea and then allow them to craft in whichever way they like. The process of crafting is much more important than the end result.
What can 2 year olds do in crafting?
2 year olds are working on building their fine motor skills, this is essential for pre-handwriting skills.
At this age, children can:
- scribble with crayons/markers
- use glue with assistance
- place stickers
- use dot markers
- mix colors
- trace basic shapes
- use stamps
- paint with paintbrushes
Have so much fun putting all of these into action with these great fall crafts for 2 year olds! Which will you do first?
