Mess free painting fun!

So yesterday me and Darcie wanted to do a fun activity but I had literally just cleaned the house and cleaning up paint was the last thing I wanted to do. Now don't get me wrong me and Darcie love to get messy but when you have slogged away all morning cleaning your kitchen.... No I didn't want to paint.

Well not the ordinary way anyway.

So we decided to do some mess free painting. Here's what to do, get yourself a ziplock freezer bag, some suitable kid safe paint, and some tape. 

Open up the freezer bag and carefully pop some splodges of different colour paint INSIDE the bag. Then make sure you seal it. 

To make sure the paint isn't going to escape, tape all the way around. Duck tape would be ideal but all I had was parcel tape, which worked fine.

Add some extra tap to secure down to a surface and then let them enjoy mixing colours and having a good squidge, mess free!

We got even braver and stuck some to the windows to allow the light to shine through the paint, which in Darcie's words were "Pteee" (pretty if you don't speak her lingo!).

I would definitely recommend this activity for little ones if your not in the mood for mess!

  1. We did a similar activity at baby sensory, but Isabelle is still way too little to enjoy it. I love the idea of taping it to the high chair, keeps it all even more contained! Sarah xx

  2. I used to do loads of activities for Darcie even when she was very young. Its nice for them to explore even from a young age :) xxx

  3. What a fab idea! I'll definitely have a go at this with Riley, he'll love it! xx
