Toddler Activities

Water Painting

When I’m in the kitchen I like to engage my toddler in either helping me or doing an activity at the table. Given the option I think she would always choose to paint, but I do not particularly love to set up paint or clean up paint, so we mostly do paint with water activities.

One of her favorites is this Melissa & Doug water painting book.

How cute are these? I love that each page has its own watercolors. The illustrations are engaging and the colors paint nicely.

I think these came in a set of three booklets. There are several different booklet themes (ocean, safari, garden, etc) and each comes with 20 pages and a little paint brush.

Have you tried these? What paint activities are your go-tos?
