Puffy paint was the name of the game this day. We mixed equal parts flour, salt and water with a food color of choice. Note: if you let the toddler add the water, he will get it everywhere.
First, we made blue... Egan's first choice.
Then, we poured the paint into a bottle we got just for this project.
Egan was PUMPED. I mean, really, have you ever seen such pride?
I let him try out the paint on some poster board before we made the other colors. He declared it a success.
You know, painting take some serious concentration.
Next up, we made some green...
and then some yellow and purple! (Why purple? Well, I only had a very small amount of red left, so we used what we had and then mixed in some blue... ta da!)
The finished painting products. He's done more painting since these were taken, but I'll be sure to take a picture of the finished painting. It was really like two projects in one! We made the paint, and were able to paint with it!
He was one happy kid. See?
Egan and I would like to take this opportunity to wish Daddy/Blake a happy birthday! He's worked a long hard day, so we are going to hold the celebrations till tomorrow on his birthday take two! Love you, Blake!
