I love simple activities that don’t involve a lot of set-up and also include free to nearly free items. The paint chips you can get at your local paint store or Wal-Mart make GREAT little activities for children that can be a learning experience as well as just plain fun.

Today I rounded up some cute ideas for you to try. With baby no.2 coming in just a few short weeks I’m sure we will be trying some of these as well with my toddler daughter.
