Oh, just thought of something creative for the not-so creative. My son (2-1/2 ish) loves to take pictures. He has a little, cheap, old, broken camera that works only well enough that he can advance the "film" and release the shutter. It clicks and makes noise and he can run around composing pictures all day long. No mess, no fuss, no cost, happy boy. It's a good balance to the projects that take half the day to set up and the other half the day to clean up.

Buy a bag of popcorn kernels (very cheap). Get a big piece of paper and you or your child can squirt various pools of glue throughout the page. Then let your child stick handfuls of the kernels and stick them down in the glue. When finished with this part of the project, let it dry very well. Then, let your child paint the kernels different colors. Makes a nice textured pattern. Usually something to dump in the garbage a few days later, as it's not exactly easy to store or hang up (unless you glue them down really well and the paper is sturdy I guess) but it's all in the process.
