I used to keep a lot of basic craft supplies within reach of my boys - aged 3 and 5 - (crayons, paper, old boxes, scissors and yarn) but I found that they made a huge mess of it whenever I had my…Continue

What a great idea that is Christina! I never thought of using fondant. (I recently made a fondant cake, and have a SUPER easy recipe for marshmallow fondant on my blog if anyone is interested.) Do your kids eat a lot of it while playing with the fondant? Thanks for sharing this!

Hey Sarah, I have the same question for my 1-year-old boy. I also have a 2 1/2 year old, and he's pretty good. They both love play dough, but Caleb, the 1-year-old, eats it. I recently discovered that homemade fondant (like for decorating birthday cakes) is better tasting and works just like play-dough...
The finger painting is fun, and pudding works well. (it is very very messy though... but what isn't at this age?) We have a good set of foam blocks that are fun, and it's cute to watch Caleb try to build towers with them. He's getting the hang of it.

I think I'm going to like this group!

Another thing my youngest loves to do is string beads and make jewelry. This can be an inexpensive hobby as well. All you need is a bag or two of beads from the craft store and a skein of yarn. It also teaches them hand to eye coordination.

you could try fingerpainting with chocolate pudding, that way if she puts it in her mouth it won't matter.
or try drink/jello powder for painting with a brush and water. I've never tried it but I don't see why it couldn't work like powdered paint.

Anyone have any ideas on how to get creative with a 12 month old? Is she just too young to really get the idea yet? I try to include her in all my creative activities. Like decorating a birdhouse, making her grandma a mother's day gift, etc. But does anyone have anything else she might enjoy?
