I’ve been enjoying sharing some of the kids activities and projects I do with my kiddos each week. Feel free to comment with a link to fun activities you’re sharing on your blogs (or even if you don’t have a blog) as well! We’d love to check them out.
The following is an activity I found on Pinterest via The Hippie Housewife a while back and knew I had to try it with my kids. Kaelyn and Kaden LOVE to finger paint, but there are times when the mess is something I don’t want to deal with. Thankfully for those days, this activity is a lot of fun and mess-free!
- a gallon size Ziploc bag for each child
- painters tape
- finger paint
- white paper
I got out a few colors of paint and asked each of the kids which colors they wanted to paint with. I then squirted a little of each one into the bag and sealed it (making sure the air was out). I then placed a piece of white paper under each Ziploc bag and taped them to the counter like this:
The white piece of paper makes it easy for the kids to see the colors and what they’re “painting”. I knew they’d have fun, but didn’t realize how much they’d LOVE this activity! They enjoyed the sensory experience, as well as being able to mix the colors and see what color they made.
Kaelyn enjoyed using it to write letters and shapes with her fingers as well. It’s great for practicing her letters, numbers, words, etc!
I am thrilled with how well the kids like this activity, how educational it turned out to be, and how easy it is to set up and take down with no mess. It’s definitely something we’ll be doing again and again!
