Painting is a great activity for children. Painting is expressive and also allows children to practice developmental areas such as fine motor skills, and color recognition. When painting be sure to use washable paint and set up your child's paint area with everything you will need before you start painting.
All of the items used above are non-toxic, easy to use, and right-sized for a toddler. Painting makes a quick 15 minute activity for your toddler that can be stretched to 20 minutes if you get creative.
People always ask me where I purchased the painting drop cloth on the floor. I purchased it from Amazon, it is a Melissa and Doug drop cloth. The paint is crayola non toxic finger paint.
