I'm a little hesitant to title this post finger painting, because it may have started with one finger....but it definitely didn't end that way. Keep reading to see what I mean...
Parker was getting a little antsy, so I rummaged through my craft drawers and found some finger paint. I threw his little apron on him and got all set up at the table. He looked at me a little funny when I stuck his finger in the paint and put it on the paper. He was definitely thinking, "Where's the paintbrush?" With this being his first time finger painting, I had to teach him that it was okay to touch the paint.
He started off doing great with only finger.
And then he got a little braver, and one finger turned into three fingers.
And then he got a little paint on the table by accident.
And then he figured it was already on the table so why not go for it.
...and a little up here....
At that point it would be a lie to call it finger painting. Hand painting would be more like it.
Whatever. He had fun making a mess, and that made me happy
His first finger/hand painting masterpiece is now hanging in our hall. :)
