Paint that DOESN’T make a mess? Is that even possible?! Of course! Kids love finger painting, but parents? Not so much. Your nice white walls can easily turn into an unexpected piece of Picasso artwork if you leave the kids unattended for 5 seconds. With this mess-free finger painting, you won’t have to worry about your furniture or walls getting a makeover. Plus, this is perfect for kids who may not like to get their hands dirty, but love art projects! Just put some paint inside a large plastic bag, let all the air out, and make sure it’s sealed well. They’ll be able to get all the fun and excitement of painting without the mess.

Depending on the age of your child, you may want to stay away from tiny-piece puzzle sets, but there are plenty of puzzles out there that’ll keep your kid busy! Puzzles are also a great activity for brain stimulation and relatively easy to clean up. Just make sure that you have a little baggie to put all of the pieces in so you don’t lose any.
