When planning A’s room we decided on a simple decor. I wanted to make some of the art that we would display in his room and I wanted him to be a part of it. Easier said than done with an infant, but we found a solution, we painted with A’s feet.
Not only did it provide me with the art I wanted for his room, but gave him a great sensory experience as well.
He was hesitant at first to feel the wet paint on his toes, but soon over came his hesitation and jumped right in, literally. 🙂
We did this activity when A was about 4 months old.
Once your baby is done, simply wash their feet and toes and your done.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get a picture of the creative process 🙂 I was holding the baby.
In all, this activity took me about 30 minutes including clean up. Short and sweet for your little ones.
Now that A is older (9 months) and I don’t have to worry so much about him shoving his hands in his mouth we did the hand painting to accompany the feet art. Following the same steps as before but instead of using baby’s feet, A used his hands.
A simple and cheap sensory activity for your infant that will produce one of a kind art.
We already have requests to do another feet piece for Grandma 🙂 the paintings make wonderful gifts.
