Although I have built my curriculum over the many years of my doing daycare I am always looking for fun projects. I have 3 years of curriculum that I rotate each year so that toddlers always do something new and 3 years last until they are off to pre-school.

One of my favorite activities is Marble Painting (kids love it too)
I contacted a local pizze company and they were nice enough to donate some new pizze boxes to me. Place a piece of construction paper or card stock in the box, add drops of paint in different colors, toss in a few marbles and SHAKE LIKE CRAZY!! Kids love the shaking and it makes great artwork!!

Ideas for painting: Go to the local $ Store and pick up the following items then let the kids paint with them. You may also ask parents if they have these items laying around. Parents love to help out!

cookie cutters
Ribbon (makes great squiggly marks)
plastic animals (make great animal prints)
matchbox cars(tire tracks)
Lids to old butter containers
Milk caps
plastic silverware
