I look after a now 20th month old who is starting to enjoy using crayons, chunky felts, painting and gluing as not everything goes straight into their mouths :clapping:
They are looking to the older children for inspiration and want to join in with them at crafty time.

jacey, thanks for your suggestions too. She loves the chunky crayons. She spent a whole morning just drawing on scraps of paper.

Thankyou everyone

I blob different colour paint in the though spot & add shaving foam. When the children mix it round, it makes different colours & goes all gloopy. The children mix it with spoons or bare hands. We can them hide llittle animals or people in it (the toys, not the real thing!).

I don't know if it's because ofthe shaving foam, but it rinses off really easily as well :thumbsup:
