Crafts for a 2 year old.

On November 3rd I will be starting my new job.  I will be watching a 2 year old (27 months) boy and I want to do some fun stuff with him but I am so used to the babies.  What are some fun crafts for a little boy this age?  Any neat holiday crafts?  Any other ideas to keep him busy throughout the day, he old takes one afternoon nap.

I keep a 2,3, an 5 year old.  Here are some things you need to add to your shopping list.  ( I was a 3 year old teacher before I worked there)  

1.)  Paper plates  ( Dollar tree )
2.)  Stirfoam plates  ( Dollar Tree )
3.)  A bag of mac noodles  ( Dollar Tree )
4.)  Non-toxic glue  ( Dollar Tree )
5.)  A glue gun an glue sticks  ( Dollar tree )
6.)  glitter
7.)  bag of rice
8.)  crazy eyes  (dollar tree)
9.)  pipe cleaners  ( dollar tree has all colors)
10.)  pop sickle sticks  ( dallar tree )
11.)  cotton balls  (dallar tree) they have the rainbow colors an white
12.)  yarn  ( dallar tree )
13.)  paints
14.)  side walk chalk ( dallar tree )
15.)  cryons
16.)  markers
17.)  construction paper  (dollar tree )
18.)  paint brushes
19.)  coloring books
20.)  buttons

this is just a few things that I can think of right now.  Just with those things the ideas are endless.  Dallor tree has other things to.  I just made sun visers an wood bird houses that came from there.  You can paint t-shirts too.  I'm going to ad a few links that will give you links that will give you tons of ideas.  You can go to google.com an type in easy pre-k crafts an you will get tons of sites.

you can also tpye in craft ideas for toddlers.  I hope this helps.  A VERY easy one that the kids i keep love is... let him color or pain two stirfoam plates.  When he is done take them an put rice in the middle to make a shacker.  You can put party streamer on the edges after you staple it VERY well.  It should look like a tamberean.  ( Im sure i spelled that wtong lol)  Let me know if this was of help to you.  God Bless.  Anita
