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!

  1. I am not sure where you’re getting your info, but great topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more.
    Thanks for fantastic info I was looking for this info for my mission.

  2. You made some good points there. I did a search on the subject and found most persons will approve with your blog.

  3. Great idea! Markers are always simple, clean fun and the water painting adds another dimension. I love the bowl of Cheerios in the photo, by the way (many toddlers’ constant companion??!)
