I thought the boys would love this mess-making activity (with super easy cleanup), but Love Bug had absolutely no interest.
So Sweet Pea got to have all the fun for himself.
I set up this tray full of paint in the bathtub and let Sweet Pea go to town. The paints are washable, so it was easy to clean up afterwards with the water right there.
Love Bug soon came to check things out and started directing what he wanted his brother to do and telling him what colors to use.
Sweet Pea was so proud of himself when he was all done. This is him saying, “Cheese!”
I got this idea from Growing a Jeweled Rose, where they also did body painting.
