Little Brother woke up early from his nap yesterday, which meant that we had some very rare one-on-one time while Big Brother was still asleep.
I’ve heard of using yogurt (or pudding) as fingerpaint for very young children and thought we would give it a try.
All you need is yogurt…and preferably a baby clothed in a diaper only. :)
|I would recommend letting the yogurt sit on the counter for 15-20 minutes prior to starting the activity. I took it straight from the refrigerator and I don’t think Little Brother liked the coldness!|
|After several minutes, he’s finally trying again. By the end, he really liked it…|
|…and he liked to taste of it too. :)|
Perhaps your child enjoys participating in “fingerpainting” on a daily basis…but it isn’t necessarily an intentional learning activity. Rest assured that at least he is getting some sensory exposure from that mess he’s making. :)
