I've offered to plan some simple, quick to do crafts for the toddler group i take J(22m) to, i'm usually very good at coming up with things(and obviously certain times of the year it's simple!) but that's with a couple of children at home, this will be anything up to 20 children aged 12m-3yrs.

Any ideas greatly appreciated?

i was going to suggest that   Grin

leaf printing
hand & foot prints
straw painting (blowing down straw to move the paints)
collages with different materials, textures etc.
junk modelling
playdough
clay
decorating biscuits

Bubble painting. Same principle as the straw painting, but add some washing up liquid to the paints.. hold paper just above, and blow..

That's best with pre-school age, though, as younger ones tend to get a mouthful of soap. And they don't like that.

Does anyone do bubble painting where you put paint, water and washng up liquid in a cup or paint pot and allow children to blow bubbles with a straw untill they sort of make a big bubble afro on the cup and then get a peice of paper and lower on to the painty bubbles?

you could also make shakers - loo rolls/kitchen rolls with lentils in - just use sellotape to seal off ends (and don't forget that some lentils will stick - so use extra)

You could do a journey to school and get them to stick on pictures of vehicles they see on the way.

or make it a big collage.

Our topic has just been transport( mine are 2 yrs) we talked about different types of transport and did painting, cutting and sticking junk modeling and used different types of transport e.g car,bus,taxi,helicopter,aeroplane,train etc we also used transport cutters in the playdough and transport moulds in the sand. We also talked about the people that help us e.g police officer. Mine really making a giant red bus and did a map like display. Danni x
