Lion Crafts for Toddlers
My kids are obsessed with animals. We can never have enough animal crafts in our house. We basically have a craft zoo with animal headbands and animal paper bag puppets. Recently, my toddler asked me a ton of questions about lions, so I knew I needed to come up with a lion craft idea! Much to my surprise, though, she continued asking questions, so I knew I needed a few more.
Crafts are such a staple in our house. I love that my toddler can play with her craft when it’s done, encouraging imaginative play. I also really love spending time with my kids doing something so fun and engaging. When the craft is simple and fast, that’s even better for me!
Benefits of Crafts for Toddlers
There are so many benefits of doing crafts with your toddlers. Here are just a few.
- Crafts help toddlers develop fine motor skills that they will use the rest of their lives!
- Messy play, yes, even just paper and glue, is so good for your toddlers to get them used to different textures and sensory experiences.
- Crafts teach problem solving, following instructions and frustration tolerance, all skills that your toddler will use in so many other areas of life.
- Spending family time together is such an important part of childhood and crafts are a fun and interesting way to do that!
