Easy Preschool Craft Ideas 2 year old and up

Our preschool craft ideas are for everyone

Our preschool craft ideas are for everyone,especially preschoolers, who would like to make something out of nothing.

We've researched this topic and found that most of the crafts available are to difficult for preschoolers, especially for the ages between 2 - 5. The crafts that you will find on this page are all easy and will be a masterpiece to your kids, something that they can be proud of. We also have bible crafts that both you and your kids will enjoy.

Just a small  tip before you dive into all the craft activities. 

  • Find a big box or container where you can store all the different kinds of material. Shoeboxes within a big box works best as you will be able to divide the crayons, cardboard, paintbrushes etc. It will make the task easier for you and will not let the little one's wait too long and get bored.

Basic things you will need for your box. 

  • White and colored paper
  • White and colored cardboard
  • Tissue paper
  • Different kinds of paper you can find that is interesting
  • Foil
  • Polifilla
  • Glue
  • Crayons
  • Felt pens
  • Powder Paint

  • Old T-Shirts
  • White candles
  • Straws

  • Ice-cream sticks
  • Rubbers
  • Pipe cleaners

The first preschool craft ideas we have are all animal related. I'm sure that your kids will be able to follow your instructions as you read it to them.

Why Not Teach PreSchool In Your Own Home?

Start A Preschool (Not a Daycare) and Make Money At Home With Your Children

Have you heard of my friend Joy Anderson yet?

She is a single mom with 3 kids who just discovered the BEST JOB for women who want to stay home. Two years ago, she couldn't find any work-from-home job that would give her a consistent income plus let her spend quality time with her kids while she was working. And then... she found it.

And guess what? She doesn't run a home daycare. She doesn't sell things on the internet. And she doesn't work 8-12 hours a day.

And now she's revealing ALL her secrets (on a 60-min. CD) to teach you how to do it too! Get your FREE copy here today.

Yes! it really is free and if you already have preschool children you really will find it beneficial (maybe even life changing)!
