I've got another easy and thrifty fun activity to share with your older toddler today… preschoolers will also love this one I promise!
The toddler twosome enjoyed getting out into the sun to do some Cottonbud Painting with their watercolours!

This is such a fun activity, I used to love getting that out at child care and for the girls too but it’s been a while. I should try and remember for the school holidays I’m sure Miss 8 would like to do some cotton bud painting. xx

Looks like lots of fun.
Thanks Fiona! Not quite as messy as usual but still fun!
Our playschool children love painting with cotton swabs! Fun times!
It is a classic activity isn’t it? Thanks for dropping by x
Love it! The most simple things are definitely the best, hope you had a good nap 🙂
Thanks so much for dropping by…the girls had a good nap which meant i got some lovely quiet time!!Got to love the simple activities!!
Neat idea! My son loves tO play with qtips…by putting them in his ears lol!! He’s seen mommy do it enough and he loves to imitate! This is definitely a better use for them!! I’ll have to try it when he grows up a bit.

The simple ideas are so often the best, and all the more relaxed when you can do them outside. You make it all look like such a lot of fun. Thank you for joining me on Country Kids.
