How cute is this?

If you have a toddler or a budding preschooler with time galore this summer, I have at least 10-20 hours of your summer covered right here in this post.

Summer is the perfect time to be outside, explore, and get messy — all of which are on toddlers’ daily agendas. I’ve scanned the interwebs and found some really cute projects that can be done mostly outdoors, or indoors if you dare.

These are less crafts than they are art projects, giving your little ones time to really use their senses and create. Whatever your little ones’ passions are, I’ve got it all covered here. These sculpture, painting, drawing, and printing projects are all toddler-friendly and are bound to be lots of fun (except for the cleaning up part, which of course, falls to you).

No one said having a toddler was easy! Check out 10 cool art projects below!

Aluminum Foil Drawing Or Painting

Wrap aluminium foil in cardboard, then let your little ones loose with markers or paint. For a no-mess version, let them use a soft craft stick or their fingers.
