This could alternately be titled: “Baby learns to paint”. Even with our no-spill shaving cream paint recipe painting is a messy activity. Coloring with markers, while the kids color plenty on themselves and even the table, it easily wipes off and is less destructive. So markers are an early “art” activity over here. But painting is still a ton of fun! Why don’t we combine them! Our younger preschooler had fun scribbling on a page and then painting over it with water. It was fun to watch the colors bleed and fade into each other as my daughter explored.
Do you have any tips for getting your toddlers involved in art projects? I’d love to hear about them!
