Chocolate Pudding Painting

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?

New School Year-New Plan

Okay here's the plan...this school year I am going to commit myself to crafting with my kiddos. 3x a week we will do a craft/science project/etc. And they will love it! Okay...that's a stretch. But we'll try some new things. And maybe find some new crafts we like. So stay tuned...we'll post our adventures here. And maybe it will inspire you to be crafty too!
