It’s never too early to dabble in the arts. Introduce your curious little bundle to a world of colors — and don’t be afraid to get messy! We roved the web and found a slew of art projects you can do at home with your baby or toddler. Click through our photo album and get ready to do everything from footprint stamps to flyswatter paintings.

Shake ‘N’ Paint

A painting by the wee one that’s gorgeous and mess free? Yes, please! Shake up craft time with bag art. You simply put paper and fingerpaints in a plastic bag and jiggle, jiggle, jiggle. Think of the masterpieces you'll have ready to adorn the family wall of fame. Get the instructions at Mamawatters.
