  • Finger painting with non-toxic paints :)

  • you can also fingerpaint with pudding. It's extremely messy. Everyone will need a bath, but it's fun and they get a treat they don't normally get.

  • I love doing art projects with my daughter, GO TO THE DOLLAR TREE, or deals or whatever and look for little foam stickers, They love these , grab some construction paper, or printer paper, finger paints, color wonder markers and paper, tadoodles beginner crayons and markers , Layout plenty of paper to protect important hard to clean surfaces and the both of you sit down and go at it, If they seem uninterested, you start doing it , they should mauk you, if they still don't get it , sit them in your lap and Place the marker (crayon,etc) in there hand and you guide there hand on the paper, getting excited when it makes a mark and showing praise for how beautiful of a job they did...Dont forget to display them where they can see how proud you are.

  • The is a recipe for edible play dough. I don't have the website, but you an google it. It's a lot of fun and if she happens to eat it its ok. My 2 YO still plays with it when I make it for her.

    Finger paints (non toxic of course) are always fun.

    Sidewalk chalk

  • You can look for the recipe for edible peanut butter and chocolate playdough. My 1 & 2 yr olds love it!
