Talk about fun! I stripped Luke down to his diaper, laid out some plastic table cloths and a poster board, gave him some non-toxic paint and let him go to town!
He absolutely loved it! He smacked the paint, slid across it, smeared it, kicked it, and even ate a bit. The neighbors thought it was hilarious and Luke had several onlookers.
The result was a beautiful and colorful painting and a very messy and happy baby! I highly recommend this activity for your baby. A couple recommendations:
- Do the painting outside (you don’t want paint splattered all over your kitchen).
- Purchase non-toxic paint that washes off with soap and water. (I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby).
- Wear junky clothes (not only will baby be covered in paint, so will you).
- Keep the camera at hand!
