Open Ended Painting


For toddlers painting (or any “art” activity) is all about the process.  Toddlers don’t care much about what they are making, so long as they are having fun making it.

Finger painting is a great activity to do with toddlers.  Most of them love getting messy (although some do not like it and that is perfectly normal too).  And they are curious about how it feels.  It’s great for talking about colors and for mixing primary colors together to see what happens. 

This activity for finger painting is perfect for toddlers- or anyone really.

What you’ll need:

Finger paint




Put some finger paint on the highchair or table and let your toddler paint the table. 

 Hailey loved painting her tray.

When she was done I took a piece of paper and and pressed it onto her painting- a way to save the painting she had done.
