Abby has been very interested in coloring lately and we have spent a lot of time with her colorbooks and loose paper. After several coloring sessions this weekend I was a little bored and wanted to do something different, so I looked through my craft supplies for something we could make together.
I found a small canvas and decided to let her finger paint. Not wanting to clean up a paint mess all over the house (and all over the kid) I placed blobs of different paint colors on the canvas and then enclosed it in a gallon-sized Zip lock bag.
I set her loose to play and have fun squishing the paint around with her fingers.
She had lots of fun and the project occupied her for quite a long time. She is quite proud of the end result, seen here drying:
