No Mess Finger Painting

No Mess Finger Painting

Painting with little ones is so fun! I enjoy arts and crafts myself and I've been wanting to try something out with Maci. With painting I was worried about her eating the paint, because everything still goes in this little one's mouth. I saw some posts on edible paint and I want to try that another time, but I found an easy no-mess painting activity.

This no-mess finger painting activity is great! I think I enjoyed it more than Maci did. It was relaxing and fun. I guess after the Jello Dig last week Maci wasn't as impressed haha. I will complete this activity in the future with Maci. I think with enough exposure she will become more interested. But I think older kids may enjoy this activity. 

 


What you'll need:

  • Card stock paper (you'll want card stock so the paper doesn't get soggy and rip)
  • Paint (I used acrylic paint, because that is what I had. I think any paint will do)
  • Ziplock bag
  • Painters tap (This tape is easy to remove and won't tear)

Steps:

  1. Gather your supplies
  2. Cover any parts of the paper that you don't want covered by paint. I used the tape to make an M for Maci.
  3. Add paint globs on the paper. I used four colors: pink, white, green, and black. I only used a few dots of black, because less is more with darker colors.
  4. Carefully place the paper inside the ziplock bag
  5. Tape the ziplock bag down to the table so the child will not remove it. I had to do this, because Maci is 9 months old. You may or may not have to do this step.
  6. Let the fun begin! You may need to model for your child. I showed Maci how to push the paint around with my fingers and hands.
 

With the painters tape you could make any design for your child. I wanted ours to be simple and I want Maci to recognize the first letter of her name M, for Maci. So, I chose to do M. If you have a Silhouette machine or something similar you could create your own fancy stencil. There are so many possibilities!


 



I am happy with how Maci's first art project came out! It was tricky getting the paper out of the bag without making a mess. So, I suggest cutting the ziplock bag. I would unzip the bag and then cut down the side. After I removed her paper I let it dry for a few hours on top of a piece of cardboard. When it was dry I removed the painters tape and revealed the M. It looks great! On the back of the paper I wrote Maci's name and the date we completed it. 

Let me know how your art projects go. I'd love to see pictures of your little one's master pieces! 


Happy Crafting!

Jello Dig

Jello Dig Sensory Activity I have recently been looking for new ways to entertain my little one. I feel like she has been playing with the same toys for over 5 months. She seems to feel it too. I do try to rotate her toys so she has a variety to play with. But, I decided it was time to go on Pinterest to search for a few activities I could complete with Maci. I searched for activities that had little prep and possibly things that I already had at home. Each week I would like to complete a new activity. Not only is this fun for Maci, but for me too! Our first activity we tried was the Jello Dig. This is a great sensory activity for children 6 months to 5 years old. Here are some of the supplies you will need: throwaway aluminum tin (purchased ours from the dollar store), package of gelatin, a few of your child's favorite plastic toys (I used Maci's pacifier, four different shapes from her shape sorter, one of her spoons, and teething carrot), apron/bib, digging utensi
