The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Finger Painting

SUPER TODDLER SECRET MISSION – FINGER PAINTING EASEL – TODDLER SIMS ONLY – PRIZES: COOKING PLAYSET, OUTFITS AND 3LPs

TIME LIMITED HOBBY – TIME: 7 DAYS – TIME LIMITED PRIZE: POP UP BOOK

Once you complete the Super Toddler Secret Mission Quest the time limit for this hobby will start straight away, to begin this hobby you need to buy the finger painting easel from the promotions r us store for S4,000 and place it in one of your sims houses:

image

I cannot place the easel, it says its locked/ limited item, what do I do? You will have this problem if you try and place it from the new items tab, look in your inventory instead to be able to place the finger painting easel in one of your sims houses.

If you complete this hobby in the 7 day time limit you will unlock the pop up book:
image

Once placed in one of your houses a toddler sim can click on it and select the option:

  • Create Finger Painting- 3 hours 30 minutes

NOTE: only one toddler can use an easel at one time and you can only buy one to complete this hobby the first time, after that you can buy 3 and have 3 toddlers completing this hobby at once

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the finger painting collectibles. Every time your sims completes a painting their finger painting hobby skill level up percentage will increase, once they reach 100% they will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the finger painting collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

The table below shows the level up percentage:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL 3 hour 30 minutes
1-2 50%
2-3 25%
3-4 17%
4-5 12%
5-6 8%

The next table shows you for each level what finger painting collectibles you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

 LEVEL  TITLE 1st TIME LEVEL UP UNLOCKS 2nd+ TIMES LEVEL UP REWARD
1 Dabbler Hands and Grass Sunset are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Smearer Dragon in the Garden and Rainbow Hills are now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP

6 Prodigy Kitty the Caterpillar and Fish Fingers are now unlocked in the hobby collection.

You can now complete the collection!

1LP

NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?

 

The completed finger painting collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

You will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

Storing Paintings- There is an added extra on this hobby where you can store and place paintings a toddler has created around your house, which is really cute! To do this an adult sim needs to click on the easel after a painting has been created and select the option to store painting in inventory. The painting can then be found in the decorations section of your inventory to place on a wall.

image

If you complete this hobby in the time limit you will unlock the pop up bookshelf, which costs S9500 and can be found in the toddler section:
image

The rewards for completing this collection are the cooking playset, outfits and 3LPs:

The first time you complete this collection you will unlock the cooking playset (even if you don’t complete in the time limit) which costs S5000 and can be found in the toddler section. It is really cute!
image

  • The second to the seventh time each time you complete this collection you unlock a new outfit for your female and male toddlers:

Find the nanny in the park to start this quest

Can I do discovery quests at the same time as a main quest?
Yes you can

I am doing the quest for toddlers and this one at the same time, is that going to cause a problem?
No it won’t as you don’t need to age a baby in the toddler quest

Why can’t I do this discovery quest yet?
You cannot do more than one discovery quest at the same time, if you are currently on another one (the list can be found here) you will not be able to do this one until that one is completed

Do I have to do this quest?
If you don’t start the quest you don’t have to do it at all but if you have already started it you need to complete it before you can move on to the next quest

I accidentally cleaned up the trash instead of cleaning the infants mess, how do I fix this?
Knock the trashcan over again and select the clean infants mess option

I can’t find any highchairs in buy mode, why?
You need to reach the goal to buy one before you unlock them

I can’t place my infant in a highchair, why?
The back of the highchair needs to be away from a wall or free from objects in the way so they can place the baby in the highchair from behind

What do you mean when you say a goal can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it and any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it
The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work

I can’t get my baby to play with food, why?
The plumbob needs to be over that babies head and you need to click on the baby
