Let your fingers do the painting

Fingerpainting is such a fun craft, but many parents are concerned about little ones putting their fingers – and the paint – in their mouths.

Spread a large sheet of waxed paper or a clean garbage bag over a table or work area and tape the edges down. Then try some of these ideas instead of fingerpaint, adjusting as needed for allergies.

a) Whip cream with a few drops of food coloring added.

b) Peanut butter.

c) Jam or jelly

d) A fistful of cold cooked spaghetti and a small bowl of mild spaghetti sauce.

e) Chocolate pudding

Any others?
