12 Easy and Tested Crafts for Toddlers That Will be Fun

Easy Crafts for Toddlers

This post about easy kids crafts for toddlers is going to be so useful to me when my grandson gets closed to 2 years old in May.

Right now, he’s full of energy and constantly moving from one toy or book, or loves when I chase after him.

The longest I got him to sit still on my laps last week was to show him pictures of himself on my cell phone as well as dogs on Facebook! I love technology 🙂

I’m not a crafty person at all, I’m a geek!

My computer, this blog are my kind of craft.

When my grandsons (one is on the way in March) are older, they will learn how to code from this grandma. LOL.
