Nontoxic, washable liquid paint; paper; oranges, lemons or apples; disposable bowls; plastic cover for table
Your preschooler will love making creative designs using ordinary foods. Cut oranges, lemons, or apples in half, and pour nontoxic, washable liquid paint into small shallow bowls. Dip fruit into paint and stamp onto paper. You can also try this with leaves, carrots, corn on the cob, potatoes, etc. Another variation would be to let your child design her own wrapping paper or make gift bags or cards.
