Easy Toddler Mosaic Cross Crafts (Learn & Link With Linky)



I love doing crafts with my children. It can be tricky though when ages span from 8 years to 11 months. My toddler is a hands on so he loves coloring and gluing. Here are a few crafts we did this week to celebrate Easter.

The 1st craft

cross mosaic


2 different colors of construction paper cut into any size square shapes

Glue stick


Cross coloring page already printed 


I gave my son the cross coloring page, the glue stick and the construction paper squares and had him glue whatever pattern he wished. Surprisingly at 3 he did a great job. Then once it dried I cut out the cross,hole punched the top strung a piece of yarn through and hung it up.


2nd Craft

cross plate mosaics




Paper plate

Contact paper

tissue paper cut in squares

hole puncher



cut a cross out in the center of the paper plate and then place a piece of contact paper on the backside of the paper plate with the sticky side facing through the cross opening. Then have the child add the tissue paper squares to the sticky part of the contact paper. Then hole punch, string though a piece of yarn or string though and tie and hang up!
