We have a large cement patio that is perfect for messy toddler art. A small table with cake watercolors is a permanent fixture and will likely show up often in this blog. My son can putter as he pleases, mixing colors in little cups of water, adding sand and potting soil to his painting when the mood strikes. At this age, the watercolors seem to be more about experimenting with liquid and color mixing rather than painting on paper, but it’s still so fun to see him playing. He most often mixes up little cups of ‘coffee’ for us. I love that he can do this outdoors, and will be able to for most of the year where we live.
