Back in action

As I posted last week we haven't been doing much in the way of crafts lately. This is the first weekend without the cast so naturally it was time to dive back in. I found a few cute Thanksgiving crafts but really wanted to do something where Jacq could just have fun and the activity wasn't so structured. I also thought it would be nice to get her outside. The doctor told us no parks, slides, swings, etc for 3 weeks. She also still isn't walking. I figured some good old fashion finger painting fun was in order. So here ya go!




TIP: Reuse yogurt cups to hold your paints. Applesauce cups work well too!







As you can imagine it was straight to the bathtub after this. She had a blast and it was nice to spend some time outside. For those of you not in Arizona, yes it is late November and its still warm enough to sit outside half naked.

Is it terrible that I have not let Ella play with finger paints yet? Do they come out of hair ok? Will it be bad if she gets it in her eyes or mouth? Like REAL bad? Also, will it stain my deck outside? Should I have her do it in my front driveway instead?? LOL I am SO NERVOUS! LOL. I need to get over it! It just messy.. who cares? LOL

Jill- You are too funny! Don't be afraid. Its actually a lot of fun. Crayola makes washable GEL finger paint. It is SO easy to wash out of clothes, hair and off of my porch. I'm not sure about your deck. I would test a little area that is out of sight first. Just have fun!
