Toddler Art Without the Mess

By Myjoneses
Toddler Art without the MessI came across this on pinterest: no mess toddler painting.  And since we've been trying to include Sage in our art making but we're still trying to get past the fact he puts everything in his mouth- well this was worth a try.
Toddler Art without the MessNow if my Art with Baby post was a little too messy for your taste, this is the perfect project for you.  It contains and controls the mess while still letting your baby or toddler explore the art and what paint is. 
Toddler Art Painting in a Bag.  That's right keep the mess of paints and your toddler using the paints all inside a ziplock bag, that you can after throw away or rinse out to use again. 
Cy helped me out with this experiment and even made his own to help show Sage what we were doing.  You'll need:
  • Ziplock Sandwich bag
  • Paper, I used notecards but would suggest thick paper
  • Paint
  • Curious toddler
Toddler Art without the MessThey each got to pick out a couple of colors, crayola washable paints, which I poured onto the notecard.  I then slide it into the ziplock bag.  You could probably put it in the bag and then put the paint in doesn't really matter as long as it's on the paper/notecard.
Toddler Art without the MessZip up the baggie and hand it over to your child.  Sage was pretty excited he got to participate and have his own art materials.  He grabbed right a hold of it and took some time looking at the colors and figuring out how to smoosh them around.
