15 Mess-Free Activities for Toddlers

Having a toddler or preschooler at home naturally means you are no stranger to messes. Still, there are some days when you just don't want to clean more play dough off the floor, or wipe yet more paint off the wall.

These crafts and activities are just for those days! Most of these are easy to set up. They won't leave a mess behind, and your kids will have fun too. It's a win-win.
