2. Watercolor Resist Painting: Grab a plain piece of white paper. Let your child draw all over the paper with a white crayon. (I did this next to him to help keep him engaged, because if your little one has an attention span like mine, it's not always easy to keep them going!).
Then, we pulled out our watercolors and painted over our design. The white crayon then pops out---Aiden loved the painting part!
3. Mess Free Painting: Put a piece of paper in the a big Ziploc bag. Add some splotches of paint on the paper. Seal it up and tape it to a window---then they can paint away without actually getting paint ALL over themselves and the table. A simple activity to keep one busy.
4. Sidewalk Paint:
- 2 T Cornstarch
- 4 T Water
- Approximately 6 Drops of Food Coloring
We had fun mixing all the ingredients and then heading outside to paint!
5. Melissa & Doug Habitats Reusable Sticker Pad---We received this for a birthday party favor and what an awesome activity it is! The sticker pad comes with several different habitats: jungle, farm, sea, and more where you can reuse over 150 stickers in each habitat. Both of my boys (1 1/2 and 3 1/2 LOVE this)---and what a deal for less than six dollars!
