Miss Marnie is beginning to show her artistic ability! Coming home from nursery covered in felt tips, paint and glitter is a sure sign of a fun day.

So, I thought I would encourage her at home with these fab first art materials from Crayola – I’ve yet to risk paints, chalks and the like (not sure my carpets or my nerves can take it yet!). Anything that says washable from clothes, skin and walls gets my vote!

So, far we like:

My First Crayola Washable Markers £5 for 8 (from 12 months)  – These have a special rounder shaped stamper tip making that more suitable for little hands to use (and less likely to pop in mouth!)

Bic Kids Crayons Plastidecor Triangle £2.95 for 12 (from 12 months) – Plastic waxed crayons that keep the hand clean make them a winner for me (but, throwing them from the high chair and snapping them in two not so much!)

My First Crayola Easy-Grip Jumbo Pencils £4 for 8 (from 12 months)  – The hexagon shape of these pencils helps to encourage a proper handwriting grip for small hands.

    Get yourself a few cheap shower curtains and kit the room out Dexter style, stick baby in the highchair and let them go for their life with the paints! Afterwards pick up the shower curtains and hose them down then pop baby in the bath. Go on you know you want to.

    Thanks Sophie what a great idea! Maybe I will let her paint soon…..haha
    I also saw a picture of a toddler with felt pens colouring inside a massive cardboard box. Sounds a bit mean but totally makes sense….
