Three's A Charm: Our top crafts and activities for three year olds

Forget the ‘terrible twos’ – meet the ‘tricky threes’! As our little ones toddle their way into preschooler-hood, they leave the obsession with ‘no’ behind, and begin to develop their own unique tastes, faves and dislikes. While it’s a unique privilege to watch them blossom into little people, it does make coming up with activities they’ll like even trickier. We’ve put our heads together to come up with a master list of fun toys, crafts, apps and activities that even the pickiest, trickiest three-year-old will get into.
