Activity ideas for your baby aged between 12 and 24 months

From 21 months: finger painting

Your child is still a little too young to use a paintbrush, but they can already start painting with their fingers. Using Sellotape, stick several large sheets of paper onto the wall (slightly superimposing them so no marks are left). Then give your budding young artist an apron with sleeves and pour a little brightly-coloured paint into some containers. Get your child to dip the end of a finger into the colour they like the most and make a mark on the sheet of paper. You can also show them how to gently press their whole hand into the paint and then place it on the sheet to create an interesting print. Release their creativity!
