Parenting Tips - Painting Pictures

This tip relates to children ages 3 to 4 years old.

I bought my granddaughter non toxic paints with the large painting paper and then have her pick one of her favorite toys, place it in front of her and she paints a picture of the toy she picked.

She loves doing it, it's like a game to her and of course I have her pictures everywhere throughout the house.

It keeps her busy for at least an hour, sometimes even longer.
