Finger painting

I've been trying to think of more ways to be hands on and creative when spending time with Din.  Today, we decided to get out the finger paints which is always a favorite. I picked up this little tray divider at Michael's Craft Store which is great for keeping the paints in one place.  I also like to give him a variety of "tools" to use such as various sized paint brushes, sponges with handles or in different shapes so she can explore with each of them. He also loves to mix the colors such as green and yellow to make blue.

My little Picasso made some great art work for our walls.  My favorite is when he put hand prints all over one piece of paper and on a 2nd piece he wrote his name using paints on his finger. He thought that was very cool as well to be able to write letters that way.
