Finger Painting

Finger paints!!!
This is the new look I get whenever I ask Alan to smile for the camera.
"Wash. Wash. Wash paint. Wash" (He repeats himself a lot!)

Yes, I was totally inspired by my friend Catherine's blog of her daughter finger painting in the bathtub. So, I bought some finger paints at Hobby Lobby with a gift card from Christmas and let Alan experiment with it for the first time today. Zachary woke up from his nap just in time to catch all the action while standing next to the tub, peering in. Alan seemed to like finger painting but it didn't keep his interest that long. He made 4 different pieces of art and I showed him how to make a hand print - he really liked that. He wasn't too comfortable with all the gooey, slimy paint on his hands and kept asking me to wash it off. So, our painting session was followed by a bath. Lots of fun!
