Painting is a great sensory activity for babies, but it sure can be messy! This mess-free painting is so fun for babies and toddlers and it looks cute enough to hang on the wall in a nursery or give as a gift to grandparents. Cleanup couldn’t be easier and, best of all, Baby will stay squeaky clean!
- Plastic wrap
- Craft paint
Step One: Choose just a few colors in the same color family and apply liberal dots of paint all around the canvas.
Step Two: Wrap the entire canvas in plastic wrap.
Step Three: Let your little one squish and squeeze the paint all around the canvas, through the plastic wrap. You also can use a plastic spoon or straw to move the paint around and create lines.
Step Four: Carefully peel off the plastic wrap and allow paint to dry.
