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.

Rainbow Rice Art

Combine sensory play with art and crafts time using colored grains of rice, some contact paper and a plastic bag for shakes! Even if baby is more interested in dumping and sifting, the vivid colors will get creative juices flowing. Get the rundown on how to pull this off at FunAtHomeWithKids.
