My daughter is very smart and I want to help her explore more by crafting and I was wanting some ideas for a two year old. =]

Hi Anige,
Recently my daughter tried some crafts on V-day , she is 3 year old and I helped her in making these crafts. These are handmade cards, though I helped her in cutting and all but she really picked it well and thoroughly enjoyed doing it. I got this great ideas from this wonderful blog, here is the link. http://goo.gl/FYmeHi
Happy crafting :)

For thanksgiving we traced hands and glued feathers and eyes to make a turkey, we paint paper, I found a wooden treasure box at the dollar store and he painted it and put googley eyes and macaroni, playdough, chalk, i give him a few ingredients and let him mix them up and "cook" them, get some kids scissors and teach her to cut, my son loves glueing anything I get foam animal shapes and he can paste them to paper and decorate. Popsicle stick picture frame decorated with noodles, sparkles, stickers etc...

finger painting using paints or pudding (chocolate is the tastiest), found objects pasting (nature walk for leaves, petals, pebbles, wood bits, etc). decorating any piece of construction paper you've cut out into a shape first (cut out a ladybug from red paper and have her glue on the the circles you've cut out from black paper). felts markers are way easier for the little hands at this age than crayons, tracing her hands/feet with markers. google "toddler crafts" and watch the ideas flow...

making pictures with stickers, coloring, play dough, chalk boards, painting ceramics.. if you have a pottery barn near you they normally have a kids day thing you could bring her to.. or really any arts and crafts store you could check out and see if they do
