Messy Hands, Messy Everything! - Finger Painting

If you read my last post you may remember that our window painting turned into window finger painting. So, this art activity up was just the thing to extend the girl's interest a little more.

Not that I organised it but even the least organised, messiest, spontaneous activity can be fun! It certainly wasn't put together the way I would like it BUT the two girlies were so happy doing painting after painting after painting. They were in their pj's. I was trying to cook pasta for dinner. And, there wasn't a place to hang the artwork so the pictures just piled up one after the other. This of course didn't seem like a problem at all for a 4yr old and a 2 yr old. They were completely lost in all the fun and excitement.

There are lots of ways to make finger paint. Here's how we did it....

Cel mix
paint + a bit of warm water + some powder paint colours (food colouring) + paper + hands = a whole lot of messy hands fun.

I had some fun too. I got to see the smiles of joy as the girls put together their own creative art activity.

Well done you, for managing to cook dinner, too! grace
