DIY projects with toddlers

What we have found through Built By Kids, our online website, is that kids love to be involved. Children just want to be near you while you're building a seesaw, or even cooking dinner. And any of that can be fun for them. So with a toddler, there's so many fun things you can do, from even gardening, encouraging them to get their hands dirty when we're so busy keeping them clean. Give them the opportunity to put their hands in the earth. You can play with a box. You can make an amazing cardboard castle and care this imaginary world that lets them light up with creativity. There are so many things. And truly you can find all of these projects on Built By Kids. But we just really do. I want to encourage parents to work with their children and allow them to be involved in your every day life.
