Easy art project for babies

Art is one of my passions I love everything about it from the process it takes to create a piece to coordinating colors. I wanted to pass my passion on to my daughter as early as possible. I have a few art materials left over from my college days and didn’t want them to go to waste. The materials you’ll need to do this project is this specific kind of paper, this is important because if you use regular printer paper it won’t hold the paint well and will tear through the page, this type of paper is thicker and sturdier. Paint, freezer bags, and scissors could be needed depending on the size paper you get to make it fit in the freezer bag.

Simply just put a few lines of different color paints on to the page and close it up in the freezer bag. I recommend double bagging the page so the seals are on opposite sides to keep the paint from spilling out. As soon as your baby work is complete take it out immediately. This keeps the paint from getting pulled from the page. Then toss the freezer bag in the trash and set the painting to the side to dry, and that’s it! This project is for all ages; it especially helps make tummy time more fun. I plan on making my daughter her own baby art-show just for the fun of it to display all the art she’s created in her first year, I can’t wait. Happy painting!

    What a cute idea! I made the mistake of doing this once with my littles with chocolate pudding…and not in a bag. The kids had a BLAST… but the clean-up was pretty time consuming.

      Oh no, we as moms have to find easy ways to clean to get throught the day. This idea is fun for kids and easy clean up for mom which is a plus :-). Thanks for sharing
