I encourage painting…and well the mess that results too. I try to allow my kids to have as much art and play as I can. Boys make mud in the backyard (which is allowed since landlord doesn’t care about the lawn). The boys have been allowed paint in its various forms-and request it quite often. I love the exploration and learning that results from it.
So I decided that Miss G needed to start her own explorations in
mess art. I used a very simple recipe. Couple drops food coloring in plain Greek yogurt.
She loved it
and I was able to get dishes done with no crying.
