1. The paint stayed on the cookie sheet or plastic drop cloth.
2. The paint was not to go on our face or in our mouth.

Here's "A." She enjoyed this very much!
tiny fingers dipping.
"K" was not so sure he liked the feeling of it.
"A" on the other hand loved how it felt.
It wasn't that horrible of a mess although, when it dried a little it was a bit tricky to wipe up. A little elbow grease did the trick. I also use a plastic tablecloth that I recylcled from one of "K's" birthdays that I use for art projects. For smocks, I made holes is large garbage bags, which can be reused for future messes. :)
To make your own fingerpaint; mix together equal parts flour and cold water.
Separate into small bowls and add food coloring. That's it.
I found the fingerpaint recipe at Creative Kids.
What do you do when you're in a messy mood? I love to hear your ideas!
