Sidewalk chalk, not just for sidewalks
I did this art activity when I worked with 1-year-olds in a daycare. I give my daughter sidewalk chalk and dark colored construction paper. You can cut the paper into shapes (leaves, apples, pumpkins, ghosts, etc) or leave it as is. It's fun for little ones and they can actually make marks on the paper, which can be hard with crayons. And it's way less clean up than paint. Also, the chalk lasts a long time, and you can get it cheap at The Dollar Store. Older kids will like it too as another way to create a picture.
