Hi all, I’m wanting some tips on some easy and fun crafts to do with my 2yo daughter. We have cut up old xmas cards to make some for family, xmas wreaths with paper plates and pasta, and also made xmas plates using ceramic paints. I’m stumped as to what else we can do. She’s very crafty and loves to draw and paint, but I’m wanting to do something different with her. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks :)
