8 The Best Waldorf Inspired Activities And Crafts For 3 Year Olds You Need To Try

Preview: Find inspiration and ideas in simple activities and crafts for 3 year olds.


In a constant search for new developmental activities, I looked for specific crafts for preschoolers. As I found many beautiful craft ideas and beneficial activities, this time I focused on Waldorf inspired crafts. Mostly inspired by the natural materials and Waldorf books that connect to nature.

I personally love Waldorf philosophy because of many things, but one sticks the most:

Play is viewed as the work of the young child.

That statement is so powerful and so true that I keep it always on my mind.

Secondly, magic and fantasy play important role in teachings and activities. Together with storytelling and make-believe play, the child develops their imagination in a magnificent way.
