Yesterday Simon (16 months) created his very first fingerpainted artwork! I'm calling this one "Sunset Over the Grassy Hills."
He was so excited to get to work! He's been sick, so please ignore his messy snotty face.
Pure painting bliss! It was love at first squish, for sure.
Sawyer joined in the fun to "teach Simon how to do it."
Look at that little tongue stuck out there - such concentration!
Simon loved the experience, so I'm sure we'll be doing this again soon. Maybe next time we'll attempt it at the outdoor easel since the weather has been so nice and warm.
I wish I had gotten a final photo of his messy hands (and face because he tried to lick it off his hands - thank goodness for non-toxic art supplies!), but Sawyer managed to squirt a huge amount of blue paint on to his pants, so I was too busy trying to clean up his mess at that point. For the record, we will never again do a painting project while he's still wearing his school uniform!
