So I put her in one of Nick's old shirts and let her have at it.
It was fun.
She made a huge mess.
And she was totally into it until she realized that her hands were dirty.
And then it was game over.
So I cleaned her up and we went and found a paintbrush.
All was right with the world again.
Until this happened:
The finished masterpiece (I have no idea why blogger is flipping this vertical)
Despite the "Ohmygoshmyhandsaredirty" meltdown and licking paint off her hands, it was a fun experience. She's done one more painting since this one and I was smart enough to give her a paintbrush from the start (and she didn't eat paint this time, either). Both were done on thin canvases that I bought for cheap at Michaels, but I think we're going to buy her a sketchbook-type thing so we can keep all of her paintings together in one place.
Any suggestions for other fun activities to do with an almost 15 month old?
