How to Do Mess-Free Finger Painting:
Take a gallon size zip-loc bag and a white piece of paper. Put a few squirts of paint inside the bag. Tape them to the table with the paper behind the bag. Be sure to secure the paper to the table, too so it doesn’t slide around. Let the kids squish and swirl the paint together, just like they are finger painting…except you won’t have any of the mess to clean up!
This would be a great way for your littlest ones to participate in art projects- without paint all over their clothes and in their hair, ears, eyebrows, fingernails… need I go on? (That’s what my toddler did with his oatmeal this morning, so I really know what I am talking about).
