The wonderful world of finger-painting

9 Sep

We braved the world of finger painting yesterday. And to be honest, I thought it would be a nightmare. But there was surprisingly little mess. Especially seeing as I didn’t put a smock or anything on him, and there’s the fact that I got overexcited and forgot to cover the table and the floor. He seemed bemused by the whole thing. But much more into it than when we did “finger painting with yogurt” at the group we go to on Fridays. He didn’t even try to eat the paint! It didn’t look very appetising – very gelatinous – not at all what I was expecting. I thought they were like poster paints. It would seem finger paints are a whole different animal, one that didn’t exist in Ireland in the late 70s and early 80s!

Anyway, here are the results:

So I just stuck them on some construction paper and wrote the message outside. (Yes, I only have one red and one blue marker!) Better than some Hallmark noxiousness methinks!

    Lovely idea to turn them into cards. I can feel a plan forming for daddy’s birthday.

      Have to start thinking about what to do with them now. He’s only 1. I’m sentimental enough to be drowning in them by the time he’s 2! Another plan is to scan them and print them photo size, so I can make a collage/montage? Something like that.
