Not sure what to call this as it is not finger painting! I saw on Pinterest an idea to put 2 colors of paint in a ziplock bag, tape them to the table and let the kids play with the paint. I can't remember why I pulled this out recently-maybe one of my kids wanted to paint and I didn't feel like dealing with the mess. It was a day Brian was home too. Maybe it was raining???
What I couldn't figure out was if you were supposed to put the paper inside the bag or under the bag. So I put the paper inside the bag. I'm also not sure if I used enough paint! I pulled out red, yellow and blue paint and asked N2 to pick two colors to put in their bags so they could see how the colors mixed. Natalie chose yellow and blue and Noah chose red and blue.
We could see that blue and yellow made green. It was harder to tell with red and blue. I think Noah told me it made brown. Admittedly it didn't look too purple! The only problem with this is Natalie used her finger nails and scratched the bag so paint started coming out. I put it in another bag and that seemed to be OK. Natalie played with this much longer than Noah. We also ran cars over the paint and made tire tracks.
