Parents looking into Mom and Baby or early childhood activities have several choices these days. Swimming, gymnastics, social and free play groups, music, or babywearing dance programs abound, so why choose a program like Intellidance®? The answer is simple: we are literally born to dance and sing!
Winter here in Winnipeg is cold and seems to go on forever. So what’s a mom to do to keep her little one occupied? Simple! Just crack open the cupboards and let them play! No, I don’t necessarily mean the pots and pans or the Tupperware, although both are great options. We like messy play over here, so of course we are in the pantry. This really simple activity bought us a playdate, two happy babies, and about 45 minutes of play and exploration that didn’t require too much baby proofing.
We used a drop cloth (plastic tablecloth from the dollar store) to contain the mess, some construction paper, a can of sweetened condensed milk, and two drops of food colouring per container.
Painting with toddlers and preschoolers is really, really hard, even in the good times, but they love nothing more than seeing how the streak of a brush changes a piece of paper. This is a pretty simple way to bring paint into your artful home.
