I just found a cute alternative to using finger paint. It was SUPER EASY to make.
All you need is a few teaspoons of flour, food coloring, and water. Mix the ingredients until they have the consistency of a paste and that’s it!
Since my son is still warming up to the idea of “getting his hands dirty”, I began by using craft sticks.
He eventually stuck his finger in the paste, only after I did it, for the total “Sensory Experience”.
We even talked about the color, and texture of the paint.
