Explore Painting With Your Toddler

The Honest Toddler.

At my age, painting is a multi-sensory experience rather than a purely visual one. In other words, I’m more interested in how the paint feels squished between my fingers rather than the finished “artwork.”

So, while you get creative with your tot(s) make sure to prepare your clothing and surfaces for a mess (unless your rock in supervision!).

To make painting even more fun – provide raft sticks, sponges and brushes with handles big enough that are easy for our little hands to hold.

Or you might want to give us crumpled paper or a plastic bag to use as a stamp. Using these painting tools will allow us to explore how paint works with different textures and surfaces.

Enjoy!
