For toddlers and children: handprints, flower gardens and everything else in between.
1) Impressions of body parts and vegetative resources: For the convenience of little hands, encouraging your toddler to dip his/her hands and feet in different shades of colourful, non-toxic paint for replicating impressions along the edges of walls is a splendid way to not just add a touch of uncanny personification to your child’s room, but is equally beneficial to stimulate a young mind upon the exposure of several captivating hues. Alternatively, you could use evenly chopped pieces of ladies’ fingers or potatoes carved in shapes of flowers or animals to strike a vibrant perspective in the same manner too.

With a plethora of themes to choose from, you can give your child the liberty to paint anything from apple trees to spaceships! Don’t forget to lend a helping hand in spots that are hard to reach or caricatures that are a challenge to procreate, though!
