I love the idea of personalizing the canvas with the letter of their first name. Such a cute way to make new décor for their room. Also, any mama knows how much mess a toddler can make. This blogger gives you a smart way to keep it contained. Painting makes for the perfect winter activity when the cold is too much!

I LOVE this idea. Mostly because I cannot stand the cold weather, and this brings the outdoors inside for your kids!

MommysBundle made this free printable for your little ones handprints! The baby it’s cold outside design is so cute and the perfect winter activity and keepsake. I can see doing this as an annual project.
