Simple painting ideas for toddlers

I have found when I do painting with my 2 year old, that see gets more bore easier when she is just painting on paper. So I started drawing images with a thick texta on the paper, then she has a focus - 'to colour in between the lines'. So still has a short attention spand, but she is more engaged this way.

Here are some examples. (Ps Who cares if you can't draw, they can't either, so look for some colouring pages then).


  1. It doesn't get any better than this! Mom and her child, painting together. Your approach with the thick lines for guides is great.

  2. Thanks Jimmie. As much as I tell my husband I do not encourage my child down the career path of an Artist, I do encourage and foster creativity!
