mess free finger painting

my daughter spent a lot of time with this painting idea. all you have to do is put paint in a ziplock back, tap it to the table so the bag stays still as they swirl the paint. here’s the face she made when she started:

i think this activity works best when you sit and play with your child – i guess that’s true for basically everything though!  i’m not sure how long she would have been able to keep herself busy with this though.  here’s a few things she learned/practiced doing:

*mixing colors (blue + yellow = green)

*practice writing letters

*practice drawing shapes

i love the easy clean up too!
