I can't remember exactly where I saw this idea, but I knew right away it would be perfect for Morgan. She isn't quite ready for regular finger paints because she still likes to put (almost) everything in her mouth, but she loves to color and isn't afraid to get messy.
This is really simple to do...just make some vanilla pudding and separate into different bowls or on different plates. Then add food coloring so the kids have different colors of "paint" to play with.
It's nice to give them time to be creative and they get to have a little snack at the same time. Who doesn't love that? :)
