I've been wanting to try finger paints for awhile now, but just wasn't sure if the Boys were ready for it, in other words, I wasn't sure if I was up for cleaning up the mess.
I found a recipe for washable paint and mixed up a batch. It turned out great. And the boys had a ball.
I was a little afraid that with all the food coloring they may have been blue for a couple of days, but luckily it all washed off.
Even the clean up was fun!
