Babies are too small for most art projects. I have known some babies under a year who do well with those think chunky crayons or finger paints, but mostly, babies ignore art projects. baby finger paintOnce your baby turns one years old, it's a whole other ball game. Try some of these art activities:
  • Non-toxic finger paints - feet prints are fun too.
  • Big crayons.
  • Clay and play-dough.
  • Taping colored shredded paper together.
  • Gluing colored cotton puffs to paper - you do the glue part.
  • If you have a very coordinated baby, you can start teaching her to string chunky big beads onto thick string.
Bad baby art ideas:
  • Your baby holding the glue.
  • Markers - I don't care if they're washable, unless you want your baby covered in ink, don't go there.
  • Small items like glitter, tiny buttons, and anything else your baby might like to eat.
  • Scissors - babies (even at a year are too young).
  • Toxic paints and other items - make sure each item you buy is non-toxic.
  • Coloring books - babies are to young, so coloring books aren't the best thing to spend money on. Buy plain white and plain colored paper instead.
