I've been taking my youngest to a toddler messy art class and I thought I'd share some of the things we've done.
Mix equal parts of cornstarch and water together (slowly). Add a few drops of food coloring.
Paint on the sidewalk (it looks like paint, but dries like chalk). You can use a popsicle stick to scrape up some of the chalk and make designs, and then you can sprinkle the chalk back into the paint that's still wet to make fun effects.
Cut a paper towel into fourths. Put one tablespoon of baking soda in the middle of each section and fold the paper around it. Put each "pillow" into its own plastic ziplock bag.
Add a few squirts of tempra paint (the more you add, the more intense the color, obviously), and then add 1/2 cup vinegar.
Seal bag and shake. Put bag on large piece of paper and let it explode, jump on it to make it explode...whatever. Then use paintbrushes, feet, hands, etc. to spread the paint around on the paper.
