my 3 y/o DD's favourite activity for a long time has been to ice arrowroot biscuits. I buy a .99c pack from Aldi, make up a bowl of icing and bowl of sprinkles and let her ice away. Most of the time the biscuits do end up in the bin because they go soggy after a day or two, but the activity lasts ages, so I dont mind wasting the $1.20 or whatever the total is.

My DD loves playing with water so I put a towel over her little table and give her different sized cups and spoons or whatever else I can find and she loves pouring the water, she also grabs plastic toys to stir in lol. Keeps her happy for ages.

My DD is 2 1/2 and we have been doing lots of indoor quiet activities because DH works lots of night shifts so we do:
1. Glueless collages - tape a piece of contact to a wall/table/fridge and let them stick pictures cut from mags, feathers etc onto it. Cover with another piece of contact and use as placemats or window art etc
2. Put shaving cream onto a table or bench and let them draw through it. Easy to clean up.
3. Paper mâché is good too but takes a while to get a finished product.
If I think of any more I'll post again. Also check out your local cheap shop or spotlight for craft packs. We recently bought 2 wooden fairy wands and DD painted and decorated them and she loves them.
