So the big guy wanted to paint but the little guy is at the stage where everything ends up in his mouth. I, in fact, started with both of them painting with kids paint but after little man had a blue green mouth I stopped that.
Next I took some sugar free chocolate pudding and gave him that. He actually painted...well...he mushed it around on his paper. Now, when big guy saw little guy eating pudding he said forget paint give me the good stuff.
So after cleaning up his hands he got to join in. He painted less and ate more. But he had fun and that's all that matters. Right?
