Note: Each of these projects is written with "dad" in mind, but feel free to substitute in "grandpa," "papa," "uncle," or any other male role model. Before you start any crafting project with your preschooler, be sure to lay out any supplies you'll need first.

Some of these projects do have drying times, so you may want to find something else for your preschooler to do while she waits.
