A Simple activity for frustrated, bored toddlers. (or mums tearing their hair out during the day, needing 5 minutes break). – When my toddler is driving me crazy and I have played every game imaginable and I need 5 minutes peace. Give your toddler a cup with water and a paint brush, go outside and ask them to paint the wall, the ground, the windows, the pots, the posts on the verandah. Make a game of it….will give you 5 minutes to enjoy a cuppa and watch your toddler ‘paint with water’ whatever they like, without mess or fuss!

  • Must remember this one. I should imagine it’s for younger toddlers as I can see older ones getting bored real quick when they see no lasting results


  • Water painting is fun and the best activity for hot days.
