With all this painting going on in our house lately H man wanted to get in on the action too! He is really bad at putting everything to his mouth. Makes him a brilliant eater but means I have to constantly sweep my floors lol!
This is an easy, simple and safe ways for young babies 6months + to paint. Using their hands and experiencing more of their senses is such an important learning tool for our young babies.
When doing this activity with your little one be prepared for them to get messy. Put them in something that is comfortable for them and you don't mind if it gets dirty. Check that they are dry, feed and rested before starting to ensure they participate more fully in the activity.
As soon as his hands were in they went straight to his mouth!
Mmmm this is not so bad! It is very sweet so they might just very well enjoy the flavour.
