Make wrapping paper.
Here is a very easy and fun activity to keep your little one busy on a rainy day.
I covered the kitchen table with a plastic table cloth, rolled out paper
and then painted her hands to make prints.
She liked it.
Some children may not like the feel of paint on their hands though so you may want to skip it and go on to just giving them a paint brush.
She really enjoyed the independence of painting with the brush.
The main problem was that she couldn't reach very far across the paper.
So I had to turn it for her.
The fridge makes a perfect drying rack.
Oh another idea is to use cookie cutters that they stamp in the paint and then on to the paper.
