So I have a 2 and a half year old boy, and a 1 and a half year old boy, and I want to start doing crafts and games with them but with these age differences its hard to include them both in something at the same time , I read to them we play outside but its been rainy and cold here lately so I'm looking for something crafty and fun but differwent that they both will enjoy. - also funds are low so it needs to be low maintance would love some new ideas moms! thanks

not really crafty but try making cookies or something like that. Rice crispy treats and peanut butter cookies are super easy and all kids love cookies. I used to love making them with my aunt and grandma, aunt cant wait until my little boy gets the attention span to be interested in it. Try cooks.com for recipes they always have easy and cheap recipes lots of time I find recipes that I already have all the ingredients for. And you can always try finger painting...just be sure to cover all surfaces not paint friendly with newspaper and you can make the paint out of washable markers and elmers glue. Just color on paper and apply glue and rub...my sister taught me when we were kids I had forgot until just now! Good luck hope the weather gets better

I have a 2 1/2 year old boy (Nathan) and a 1 1/2 year old boy (Jackson). Jackson likes stickers... and surprisingly doesn't eat them. I'll draw a house or something on a paper and give it to Nathan and tell him to put the puppy (or whatever) stickers in the windows, in the grass, etc. I give Jackson just a plane paper and let him go at it.
We also painted a toilet paper roll white, put a fabric scarf around it, added a face and it looked like a snowman. Jackson's was a little squished but he didn't care. :)

you could try finger painting with liquid jello... let the liquid cool enough to not hurt little fingers, set up a big space. I used a sheet on floor and give my daughter a couple pieces of paper. Pudding works too. I guess yogurt would too, it comes in lots of colors now... good luck :)
