Try using a pizza box to keep all your supplies & inevitable splatters contained. Summer & I painted for the first time ever last week, and the pizza box worked like a charm… if you don’t consider the time she tiptoed close to oversee me pinning her masterpiece to the bulletin board and “high-fived” our turquoise chair with gloppy purple painted palms.As you can see, our tiled floors make excellent easy-clean surfaces for art projects. If your digs are tile-free try covering the floors with a plastic shower curtain. Muffin tins are the perfect size to hold finger paints. We made our own cornstarch finger paint using this handy recipe. It made a little more than we needed, so I stashed the extra in the fridge for another rainy afternoon.
If your child loves to taste his world, both the recipe we used today and our edible bath paint are baby-friendly. No time for whipping up your own art supplies? Try the Melissa and Doug Finger Paint Set.
