Fingerpainting is a great activity for children. Regular fingerpainting makes for a nice tactile experience, but add some different textures and little hands will have a blast! Try fingerpainting on a variety of textures: tin foil, bubble wrap, sand paper, wax paper, fabric, wood, etc. Or try fingerpainting on regular paper, but add some tactile elements to the fingerpaints - rice, flour, glitter, cornmeal, sand, etc.
