Pudding Painting

Sharli has always had a pretty serious need to put things in her mouth, so she hasn't gotten to do as much painting as Erik did at her age. I had some extra boxes of instant pudding in my cupboard, so the kids helped me mix it up and color it. I put Sharli's "paint" right on her high chair tray, and Erik's on a large cookie sheet.

 Now obviously this isn't going to create a work of art you can hang on your wall, but it does give your kid a chance to create and explore new tastes, smells, and textures. Process art is so much fun!

 We talked about colors and color mixing. It was fun to try to get Erik to guess what color we'd end up with before we mixed things together. When they were done creating we had snack time ready to go!
