    Default Craft

    How long will your toddler sit and do craft for? I can't tell if I'm just really impatient and lazy for never wanting to do it... DS asked to do painting, so i set it all up and he sat there for 5 whole minutes it takes twice as long to set/pack it up. Imaginative play, like his dollhouse or little people or Lego he will sometimes play for hours, so it's not an attention thing, did you LO get more into craft as they got older or is it just a personality thing, do you think?

    If i set up paint i leave it out and he comes and goes (i use silicon cupcake molds and paper on a low table and have wooden floors).

    My DS loves doing craft, we always having his draw available for him. He will paint and glue for hours if you let him. I think it is a personality thing.

    Yeah my kiddies would do craft for hours if I let them... I usually get bored with it and bribe them to let me pack up and go outside to play

    My 2 year old doesn't really do anything for more than 5 mins

    *Sometimes* he will sit and do playdough or painting for 10 mins or so, but yeah...he has a really short attention span at the moment.

    5 nminutes is normal lol. Often less. We have 10 of them get through one at a time in under half an hour lol. Sometimes they do it for longer, and we get kids sometimes who love craft but 5 minutes is normal for 2.

    Craft is my DDs favourite thing! She will sit and paste or paint for anywhere up to 30-40 minutes. Usually I get bored and talk her into doing something else
