This week I’m featuring 5 fun ways to paint with toddlers and tots. We love painting but starting out with your todders is always a major step and it’s messy but here are 5 ways that you can get different effects when you paint with toddlers and tots.

From Create with your hands water colour and crayon resist art for toddlers which can be completly created by your Tot.

Happy Whimsical Hearts shared the gorgeous Magical Starry Night – a little help from yourself and you have a picture for your wall.

Play Through the Day shared some printing with cardboard tubes last week – this is one thing we haven’t tried yet but it’s on our activity to do list for this fall.

With 2 different fun ways to paint with toddlers The Journals of a Laura Ingalls Wanabee has been getting arty this week. Some outdoor painting and also some printing fun.

It’s so much fun to paint with toddlers I hope you give it a try this week and come and link up your posts showing what you have been up to. If you have been featured then please grab our “Featured at Rainy Day Mum” badge from the sidebar if you want and add to your blog.

Now for this week linky as normal is for any post about under 5’s – whether it’s a craft, activity, play idea, recipe, proud moment or advice you’re welcome to link up. Growing a Jeweled Rose and One Perfect Day are co-hosting and we would love for you to link up 1 or many posts this week.

Here are a few guidelines

Please don’t link giveaways unless they have a specific under 5’s focus which the giveaway is not the main focus of the post.
Once you have linked up,  we ask that you visit a couple of the other posts that have linked up and leave a comment –  we all love reading comments.
I also ask that you grab the Tuesday Tots badge from the side bar, and either add it to your blog or include it in your post through a text link back to Rainy Day Mum.
Also, just a reminder.  Linking up gives Growing A Jeweled Rose, One Perfect Day and Rainy Day Mum permission to feature and share your post  via several social medias, including Pinterest.  If being featured, we may also grab a photo from your blog for use in the post but of course will link back to your site. From this week I will also be including posts linked up in my Prompts to Play Newsletter each week to help others find your great ideas.

Whilst you come and link up – please come over to Blogging with kids and see what is happening in the Community over there. Come share ideas, find advice and support and collaborate with amazing bloggers from around the world.
