Mess-Free Painting for Toddlers

At The Sonshine Center & Preschool, they did a mess-free painting activity with their toddlers that allowed them to be creative and hands-on with their painting without actually dirtying their hands!

By putting paint on paper and putting that paper in a resealable bag everyone had fun and stayed clean.

To do this activity you will need:

Paint (acrylic or tempera works well)

  1. Put little blots of paint in various spots on the paper
  2. Carefully slide the paper into the resealable plastic bag
  3. Set the paper in the resealable bag in front of your toddler
  4. Help them press their hands down to spread the paint within the resealable plastic bag without getting messy!
