Letting little fingers play

Most of my time is spent planing the day for my 2 year olds but in the last few weeks I have noticed that my little Declan is being left out. He loves watching the kids and wants to be with them all the time. They sometimes have a little craft time in the afternoon at the kitchen table and I always sit Declan with them to watch. This week I decided to let him play as well!

Since I don't have 100 hands sometimes letting go and making messes isn't the best option for me with so many little kids running around.
I decided to let Declan finger paint without getting messy

I washed and cut open a milk bag and put a few globs of paint on some card stock, I used painters tape to seal the milk bag to the card stock and away he went!

It felt to good to let him be part of the craft time

He loved the feeling of the squishy paint

The best part was no mess!!

So proud

  1. This idea is AMAZING!!

    I have a home daycare and with 7 kids at a time I have been very reluctant (to say the least) about finger paints. This idea rocks and I am sure the kids will thank you!
