Hello artists! Today I had an awesome afternoon of being outside, creating and sitting by the pool. It was just a baby pool and I mostly watched my daughter
finger paint eat finger paint, but it was still really awesome. My friend, Kristy, (and next door neighbor) had her baby a few days after I had Soph and they’ve been doing awesome at playing together lately. Kristy saw edible finger paints for kids on Pinterest, naturally, we were curious if the girls would be interested in baby finger paint.
The girls both liked dipping their fingers in the paint and we would rub them on the paper to get them used to the feeling. It was an exercise of getting the girls to have the feeling of the paint on their fingers and seeing it transfer onto the paper rather than watching them paint by themselves (because they’re too young).
Andy (Sophie’s friend) wasn’t too into the painting because she really wanted to swim. All the while, Sophie was shoving her face with beautiful yogurt and trying to get hugs.
Soph was really digging the yogurt and was eying it from the pool so I let her out to have more. She ate it ALL. By the end she had every color all over her body. She was the prettiest pallet I’ve ever seen. 🙂 When was the earliest you tried finger painting with your kids? Was it a success? Anyone else use pools as a easy clean method? Fail proof.
