Wednesdays are "crazy craft" day, so I've been looking for fun things for us to do. Things that will take up a chunk of time, give him a new way to play, and hopefully help him learn and discover something new. A friend sent me a link from Growing A Jeweled Rose with ideas for sensory play for babies. Today I made edible fingerpaint. I used the recipe from At The Butterfly Ball and colored it with Wilton gel icing colors. I cut 6x6 squares of cardstock, stripped Sam down to his diaper, and turned him loose in the high chair. Spooning out little bits of paint at a time helped him learn to "paint" without getting overwhelmed. The end result was two finger paintings, a masterful mess on the high chair tray, and one very happy baby.
What fun crafts do you do with your kids?
