Toddler Craft Ideas (That Won’t Stress You Out)

If the phrase “toddler crafts” makes you cringe (what, you don’t like epic messes?), these ideas are for you. These too-cute crafts, shared with us from blogger Courtney from The Fight Against Boredom, are easy enough for a toddler to do -- with your help, of course -- and there aren’t a million things to clean up afterward.

The Fight Against Boredom

Coffee-Filter Butterflies

What you’ll need:
-Standard coffee filters
-Watercolors, paintbrush and water
-Pipe cleaners
-Superglue and magnets (optional)

Directions:
Lay the coffee filters flat and paint them using the watercolors. Let them dry. Then pinch the middle of each one together and secure it by twisting a pipe cleaner around the center. The excess pipe cleaner becomes the antennae. You can also superglue some magnets to the back of the butterflies to put them on your fridge.
