Tried some “mess free art” with Amu this morning. He was looking so mopey after the twins left for school that i fel we had to do something to cheer him up a bit. So, i took a ziploc bag, aquirted 4-5 diferent colored paints in, closed the bag and sealed it shut with tape for ensuring it did not leak out. Then i put it on the window pane with tape and let Amu explore. He totally liked it till he figured he could yank it off with sufficient effort and then it was moved to the floor.
It allowed him to watch colors swirl and mix. He could trace lines on it using his fingers and other objects and he tried squooshing it with his toes too. Mess free and definitely fun. Going to put i some glitter and googly eyes next time!
