Finger painting…Without the Mess!

My kids are always begging me to paint.  I hate paint.  It makes such a mess and everything ends up covered in it.  Walls, tables, chairs, floors, kids…..so when I saw this idea, I really wanted to try it. You only need 3 things: finger paint, a ziploc bag, and tape.

Put some blobs of paint in a Ziploc bag.  I put two colors in each bag to make it interesting.

Then you tape them to a window or a glass door. And the kids can finger paint all they want, with no mess!

They make handprints….

Or drive cars over it and make tracks…

And it last for days! Ours has been up for 4 days and it’s still usable.  My kids are 11, 7, and 20 months and they all love it! I’ve even played with it 🙂 And the cleanup is so easy. Just pull it off and toss it in the trash.
