Have I got an activity for you. It is the most perfect, bestest toddler art project we have ever done. Sadly, I cannot claim credit for the idea. Instead the wonderful folks over at Family Fun (not as good as the now defunct Wondertime but...). Have you browsed their website? Wowzers, do they have a slew of crafts, art projects, party foods, and other creative things.
Anyway, back to the project. Why's it so perfect? Well, for three reasons.
- Minimal mess- It took less than 2 minutes to clean it all up, and Linus required no clean-up at all.
- It can use up all that random stuff in the bottom of your craft box, recycle bin, or junk drawer.
- The results actually kind of resembles art! (Not that your baby's fingerpaint smearings don't show the promise of a future Pollock.)
