Best Art Activities for toddlers
Toddlers as young as two benefit from exploring with art. Incredibly sensory driven, toddlers enjoy using their hands to feel and apply paint, scribble with crayons, and squeeze modeling clay. They can even practice using safety scissors to cut paper and then glue them into collages. Art at this age develops both gross and fine motor skills. Plus it gives them a way to express themselves when their words just aren’t there. Designate a specific area in your home for art projects. Offer a variety of non-toxic supplies, but don’t put them all out at once (too overwhelming). Supervise, but don’t direct or judge what they’re doing. Then watch their creativity blossom. You just might get into it too.
