I started off by painting my toddlers one hand in blue washable paint. She loved the feeling as I brushed it on her hand. The other hand I painted yellow.

Next I let my toddler do what comes natural – squish her hands together.

Tinker bell was so surprised when she ended up with green paint! (I think she was almost worried!)

She finally decided it was okay to have mostly green hands and began making her masterpiece on the piece of white paper I laid down for her.

My 29 month old loved this simple toddler activity that allowed her to explore and learn in a way that was fun, playful and meaningful to her. If your toddler is ready for more exploration wash off her hands and try mixing red and yellow to get orange or blue and red to get purple.
