Make and create: Art ideas for little ones under 5


Handy tips 

Here are some of the materials Jenny uses in the video:

  • Ice cube tray 
  • Food colouring – this can stain, so make sure an adult is on hand! 
  • Large sheet of paper 
  • Paintbrush 
  • An old squirty bottle (like a washing-up liquid bottle) 
  • Bucket or jug of water
  • Coloured chalk 

It can get messy so we recommend wearing old clothes and finding a safe spot inside or outside to get creative.
