Simple Finger Painting for Kids

Baballa

Finger painting is one of the classic rituals of childhood. But if you are like me, the mess may send you into a tizzy. That's why I love this idea to clean the process up a bit without sacrificing any of the fun.

Instead of gooping tons of paint onto a paper, you douse a sponge with finger paint and then let your kids press their fingers in it. You'll get good, nay, perhaps better, results than slops and gobs of paint on the paper. And it's all much easier to clean up.

Instructions on Baballa are in Spanish, but the photos are excellent so you can follow along without any written directions.
