We do baking, cutting out paper shapes and sticking, lots of drawing and colouring with pencils and Ive just ordered some glitter pens.
She hates playdoh and plasticine.
Does anyone have any other ideas?

What about paint? you can do half a pic and fold over and press to make butterflies, mix paint and wash up liquid and blow to make bubbles in a bowl and press onto paper to make a print, blow runny paint about using straws, do stamp printing with cut up sponge or vegetables, also paper snowflakes, pasta necklaces, lentil shaker instruments, making pizzas, moon sand...

potato prints using spongy things so that paint doesn't go everywhere.

sorry, sponges like ink pads, not instead of potatoes, although that could work too.

Sheets of stickers and blank cards (greeting card type things) have been dd1's favourite thing for at least a year she is just 3. Thank you cards etc are a fiddle in our house - dd produces them at a rate of knots!
I watch mr maker on cbeebies for ideas. He dies really easy pictures. My next one to try was fireworks done with paint in black paper and then glitter - took minutes.
He prob has a website.

21mo DS and I collected leaves today and made leaf prints with poster paint on coloured paper. Nice effect, especially the one I painted like a rainbow then printed - can you tell I'm proud of it? grin It's a nice seasonal thing to do, but mark-making and printing with anything textured can be fun.

Meant to say we are making cards out of the leaf prints for the grandparents, so always a nice use for the various messes creations wink
