Baby finger painting was an idea that I got from a fellow mom. It was a blast. We did this when Elise was about 6 months old, and I plan to let her do it again one day soon. I think she will have way more fun now. It was so easy. All I did was take two Gerber banana yogurts, although you could use any white yogurt. Using yogurt is such a genius idea because of course a young one is going to put it straight in their mouth. I separated the yogurt into four containers and put a few drops of food coloring in each one. After it was mixed, I put them out on her tray and let her go to town.
It was so funny watching her. She was SO serious about it. She wasn’t sure what to think of this gooey mess, let alone mommy encouraging her to make a mess with her food!
High five daddy!
…and the aftermath:
I am so excited to do this again with her now that she is bigger and able to have more fun with it. I think we will make a photo session out of it and let her really have fun on some white seamless!
