Messy arts and crafts using a brush, sponge, or finger painting are very important for early childhood development since they help the body and brain integrate tactile information creatively. Process art is perfect for little artists since the focus lies in creating the work, not the outcome! During this fun artistic process, your child learns how colors work, especially color mixing, while developing spatial awareness and sensory integration. And it’s a creative, fun, and artistic exploration!

You’ll Need for Four Seasons Toddler Finger-Painting


First, download and print the Seasons Trees PDF. Cut along the dotted lines. Offer your child to arrange the seasonal cards in a circle, emphasizing no beginning or end but rather a continuous cycle. 

Next, ask your child to pick a color to associate with each season. Depending on your environment, you might witness and associate different colors. Or, if you live in a temperate climate and do not witness a lot of seasonal change, read books featuring the four seasons. After discussing the seasons, offer your child to choose paints accordingly to use for each season.

Finally, invite your child to finger paint each tree, representing a particular season. 

AGE 1 Y+. Always supervise your child!

  4. Sensory play spurs creative exploration.
  5. It promotes language development.
  6. Finally, sensory play increases focus and attention.
