Finger Paint

One way to get a young child’s creative juices—and skilled fingers—going without frustration is to introduce finger painting.

Make your own safe and easy finger paints by mixing 2 tablespoons of white flour with a little water to make a thin paste and then adding a few drops of food coloring.

To make painting extra easy for a toddler or young child:

• Have him paint on waxed paper taped to a table in the kitchen or outdoors.

• Put a blob of paint down on the paper and show her how to slide her fingers around.

If you want to save the creation, press a piece of regular paper over the waxed paper and peel it gently away; hang to dry.
