Today I had this brainwave. After promising to take Elijah to the beach on the way home from our shopping trek, I saw that the mist was crazy over the beach… which meant beach was a no go with two wee ones. So I told him we could paint at home. Thank goodness I had vanilla instant pudding and a bunch of food colouring. And a gigantic roll of newsprint.
This is the story in pictures… no filters or editing… as I’m posting this off my phone, no internet when Chris is at work.
Mix up the pudding per instructions. Divide into bowls and mix in the colours.
Give free reign to babies and toddlers…
They enjoyed the texture… E wouldn’t taste it.
Managed to get him to look at the camera.
That’s paint by the way…
Naomi had such a ball.
Tipped all the bowls… much to her brother’s frustration.
Love that face. Elijah wouldn’t look at the camera at all. I tried.
All in all it was a fab exercise… and one that made me grateful that my bathroom is right be the front door.
Let me know in the comments if you have any fun messy or clean activities that toddlers and babies can enjoy.
