This is the solution I came up with for the finger painting. (The sensory station we will go over in another post!)
I made "finger paint" for the boy using plain yogurt and food color. I gave him a basting brush to use as a paint brush if he wanted. You can use regular finger painting paper as it is a little more water proof, or do what I did and tack down some poster board. I found the poster board was nice because I could wipe it up, let it dry and use it several times before it became paper for the fireplace.
1: The simple ingredients. A few drops of food coloring, some plain yogurt, and containers.
2: Add a drop or two. (I kept the colors pastel, so he didn't dye his skin)
3: The FIRST thing the boy did was taste test!! (Told you so!!) And then he had a ton of fun!
A perfect rainy day activity for you tot!
