What to do on a snow day with a toddler when Daddy is traveling? No playground, no outside, no errands, no nothing. We got about a foot of snow last night in the Denver area, and it's still sprinkling out there today. So, I am trying my best to be as creative as possible for inside activities. This morning we colored with crayons, played with trucks, watched Elmo and read some books - all before 11 am!
So, to Google I went, and I found a recipe for home made finger paint: http://planetgreen.discovery.com/home-garden/make-your-own-fingerpaint.html
It's more like a paste, but it works well since it doesn't spill. Ben loved it. In fact, we did a "yeyow" (yellow) paper, a "boo" (blue) paper, and even a "geen dee" (green tree) for Christmas. : )
Below are some pics.
