You can find these tiny 4×6 canvases at any craft store and they are tiny enough for a baby to paint! On those tough days with the little one, I love doing an art project or some other sensory activity to calm us both down.
Sugar Plum did the canvas on the left with Crayola’s washable, nontoxic paint and I did the one on the right with Martha Stewart acrylics [somehow, baby’s came out better than mine? lil’ prodigy…]. I haven’t decided what I’m doing with them yet, but it was a good way to relax and also score a keepsake.
