Today N (10mths) had his first taste of painting. It was a very tactile affair. He loved splatting the blobs of paint on the paper plate and squeezing the paint between his fingers. He had a go with the brush I used to paint the palms of his hands. His favourite part was spreading the blobs of paint deposited straight onto the paper.
Top tips for painting with under ones:
Tape the paper to the table!
Have a bowl of warm water and a cloth next to you before you start!
Watch them like a hawk or that paint will be in their mouth!
