I can let my child play in shaving cream, but for some reason I have issues with paint. But I really want to let her be creative so I busted it out!
What you need for this activity is:
paint (tempura is best, but I had acrylic, so I used it!)
tray or old sheet cake pan
paint holder or paper plate/bowl
apron or paint smock
I had to show Hannah how to dip it in the paint, but she caught on quickly after that!
But, she still decided that finger-painting was more fun!
Trying the circle...she ended up just moving it around on the paper instead of stamping it...but all I cared about was that she was enjoying it! :)
(and it wasn't as much of a mess as I thought it would be. It was nice having the tray to corral the paint.)
