Now I know why you use children's paint labelled 'non-toxic'
Not having ever done this before, especially not painting with a young baby, I realised very quick not to turn my back for a second. (See the paint around the mouth)
So to start with I knew I had to get everything ready. I set up outside on the patio for the mess factor.
- I bought a PVC kids mess making sheet (easy to wash off).
- The Crayola brand Washable Finger Paint (says recommended age 2+ and now I know why).
- A rag.
- A bucket of water.
- And some plastic disposable bowls for putting the paint in.
- Oh, and the hose
To finish, I begged the completed 'Artworks' on the air dryer, utilised the bucket of water to wash her hands and feet. Hosed the PVC sheet. And then gave bub a bath. Wolhla! Our first painting experience together. And I hope there will be more to come.
