      Mess Free Finger Painting! What an awesome idea! Squirt paint into each of the Ziplock bags, put a white piece of paper under them, and taped the whole thing down with painter's tape.

    another pinner said: "This kept my 2 year busy for an entire hour and my 4 year old busy for 2 hours! YAY! Drop vinegar tinted with food coloring onto a pan filled with baking soda. Sheer minutes of colorful fizzy fun!"

    Backless bird house with suction cups for the window= you get to see the baby birds hatch! What a neat idea!

    How cute is this for a diaper bag? Why didn't they make them like this when I was carrying one???

    Chic diaper bag to hold all the essentials.

    30 busy bags---Some of these are so clever. I especially like the paint chip idea. I want to do a busy bag swap like she describes! :)

    40 Ways to Distract a Toddler

    I tried this project with a two year old today...BIG hit. We taped it to the floor first, but then used masking tape to tape it to a window. He really enjoyed the effect of painting with the light showing through. We used Q-tips or fingers for drawing utensils. I recommend this project as an alternative to finger painting because 1) it's less messy and 2) most toddlers I've worked with do not like the feeling of getting paint on their fingers.

    great toddler distraction toy

    Forget the kids, I want to do this. Clean finger painting.
