    What are the best art and crafts for very young toddlers to do?

    1 year to 5 years old? What fun art activities can they do?

    The great thing about young kids is that anything can be arts and crafts to them. My kids love cutting, taping things (I never thought I'd buy so many rolls of scotch tape!), and gluing things. Gather up some construction paper, toilet paper rolls, googly eyes, string, and stickers, lay it out on the table, and let them have at it!

    Here are some outer space creations my kids put together with old CDs, empty apple sauce cups, and stickers!

    construction paper and stickers .. they love this .. draw and tree and give either apple stickers or bingo blotters to add " fruit " to their tree, they can also glue but will need supervision, color, or you can buy foam items and add the foam type stickers .. sometimes Michael's has a little kit that includes all they need to make a project or have a tub with alot of the foarm stickers .. my friend uses the above ideas at her daycare .. the kids love it

    One of my favorite craft activities when I was very little was to play with a salt based dough.  It was made of nothing but flour, salt and water and so was completely edible (though it tasted bad enough you really didn't want to).  I played with this dough myself as a toddler and also when I was a bit older and could make more complicated shapes.
