Here is an easy fun project for you and your little one!  I started this at 6 months of age and continue to have her enjoy smashing paint colors together frequently.

What you need:

  • Pack of small canvas or poster boards (I bought a pack of 10 small canvases at Acmore for $12- what a steal!)
  • Paint
  • Zip lock bags that the canvas or board will fit in
  • Scissors

  1. Place blobs of paint on the canvas- go wild!  Place the canvas carefully into the ziplock bag. Zip it up!

  3. Place it in front of your little one and watch them enjoy
  4. Now, it’s more complicated to get it out without smearing it.  So I use the scissor to cut the sides off and then carefully lift up.  *Note, I first tried this with saranwrap, and I can tell you my little one just ripped it right away*
  5. Wa-La you are done and have a painting!  You can do this as often as you want or monthly to see a new creation!
