Well, Hello Monday!
What a great weekend! Yesterday I was trying to think of something fun to do with Bubs outside, we are having this AMAZING
late summer Fall weather! It was perfect out, not a cloud in the sky, high 60s, with LOTS of warm sun!!
I pinned a safe kids finger paint recipe on Pinterest, MONTHS ago, and have been dying to try it out with Bubba. I kept putting it off, thinking “the older he is, the more he will enjoy the paint”, and hoping the weather would cool down a bit too. Well, Sunday was the day to find that recipe and make the paint! So I pulled up my Pinterest boards and went on a search for it, guess what?, it turns out, I pinned about 5 different safe kids paints… I had a specific recipe in mind, so it took a while to find it. Here it is if you want to make it yourself. (I made a double batch).
I mixed up the recipe, then added my food coloring… I had 13 colors!!
I called our neighbors to see if N wanted to come paint with Bubs, they were in and headed on over! While we were waiting for them to arrive, I made a few stamps out of potatoes, I thought the kids would have fun using the stamps, as well as, painting with their fingers!
Meanwhile, N was making a layered masterpiece!
All-in-all it was a fun Fall day, spent outside with friends! We will definitely do the paint again, it was a GREAT recipe, safe for the kids to eat, did not stain their skin and made vibrant colors! Now that we know it washes off easily, I think next time we will do it inside, maybe that way Bubba won’t be as distracted!
What are some fun Fall outdoor activities you have done to enjoy this weather??
