Aside from a walk to the park for a play and lunch, my three year old and one year old kept themselves busy all day.

Firstly she used some cardboard tubes and painted them using a paint brush and her fingers to make patterns, then she wrapped them up in tissues when they had dried, added some tape to hold them on and then painted the outside.This was her own activity. I provide the materials and let her chose whatever she wants to work with.
