Pest Jessica here with a craft project (more of an art project) for those of you with young children. My baby will not be 1 until next month, but I absolutely love arts and crafts, and couldn’t wait to get started with my son. I decided that finger painting seemed like a pretty easy project, but didn’t want to use real paints, since I knew he would try to eat them. I searched around online and found lots of ideas, but none I felt too sure about. Finally, a friend suggested that I try using plain or vanilla yogurt. I thought that might work so we went to the store and bought some. I divided a small container of yogurt into three small bowls, and mixed in some red, yellow and blue gel food coloring. I then put the boy in his high chair gave him a piece of paper and scooped a spoonful of each color on. He wasn’t sure at first, but after touching it he got really into it. He made two pictures, and had a lot of fun spreading the “paint” all around. He also sampled a little bit as well. I would definitely consider his first art project to be a huge success, and would definitely recommend trying it with your little ones.
