Pudding, Pudding

What to do:

  1. Put on smocks or aprons.
  2. Have children help you make one or two batches of instant pudding. Make enough for each child to have about 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup of pudding.
  3. When pudding is ready put 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup on table for each child.
  4. Let children play with pudding as you would do with finger painting.
  5. Of course they’ll eat it – that’s half the fun!
  6. Other materials to use include: oatmeal, yogurt, and cornmeal.
  7. You can have them “paint” on paper, but toddlers are interested in the process not the product so “save a tree” and just do it on the table.
  8. Toddlers will enjoy helping you clean up, too. Give them sponges and have fun!
