10 Fun Ways To Paint With Your Toddler

Sharing is caring!

I love the natural wonder of 2-year-olds. They’re fascinated by things we take for granted everyday. That’s why it’s so fun to do crafts with them. They marvel at streaks of color from a crayon, dipping a paintbrush into water, or rubbing a glue stick across a piece of paper.

What I don’t love, however, is finger painting with a toddler. Ugh. It’s so messy, and it’s over so quickly, it hardly seems worth it. That’s why I love these 10 painting projects you can do with your toddler. They’re creative and simple, and yes, maybe a little messy, but worth the prep time and the together time you’ll have with your child.

1. Circle Painting

This project is perfect to introduce your toddler to basic shapes, and all you need is a toilet paper tube (and some paint, of course). A circle shape is the most obvious, but you can also bend the edges of the tube to form different shapes like an oval or a rectangle.
