Are you looking for a fantastic art project for toddlers that doesn’t require a lot of supplies or cleanup?
Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?
This sandpaper art project is such a fun way for toddlers to experiment with texture and you probably already have everything you need to do it in your house already.
Art for toddlers is all about the experience rather than the end result.
They love to play with color, texture, and size. This sandpaper art project is a great way for toddler to experiment without the pressure of making a project confirm to a standard that was set before they started.
When you color on sandpaper, the crayons just rub right off and it creates a fun, tactile experience that takes regular coloring up a notch.
If you want another way to jazz up your coloring experience, check out our hot rocks project here.
You can get creative with this and adapt it to fit your child’s interest or a preschool theme.
My twins absolutely loved this. It was the perfect quiet-time activity to keep them busy while we worked on projects with their older siblings.
Older kids enjoy this too. My big kids pretended to make “cave drawings” on their sandpaper art. It was fun for them to change things up a bit and work with a different medium.
