Hi ladies and gents! Here is a really quick idea involving arts and crafts for toddlers that any child will love! It actually turns out that non-focused art projects (process focused instead of product focused) for toddlers where they are able to be creative without a particular direction, is vital for development. You can read more about that HERE. So I have made a conscious effort to allow my children creative freedoms 🙂
I am all about saving money whenever possible so I was delighted when I re-discovered that some of my son’s old pull-up boxes that I was about to throw away were actually made for double use. (I knew I saved them for a reason lol)
These inside of these pull-up boxes actually are designed to be colored on, so I instantly thought to myself, painting would be super fun as well. Finger painting can be very messy, so these boxes were actually perfect because not only are they thick, but they cover a lot of space. (For spillage)
Take a look below at the fun that went down in the Hollomon house with pull-up boxes and a finger paining set from the Dollar Store.

Yes, his shirt is turned inside out on purpose 🙂
