Baby’s first art

Whilst browsing for baby sensory ideas, I spotted this pin for mess-free art – as I mentioned in my last blog post (here) I’m not ready for too much mess just yet! – and this seemed like fun. So off I trooped to Poundland to pick up some paint and I spent a few minutes setting up the paper, paint and cling film: a bit fiddly but nothing too strenuous. 

All the ‘ingredients’

I set up the painting on a tray in the garden as it was a nice day and the baby’s high chair tray isn’t at quite the right height. 

Paper with paint dots, wrapped in cling film, ready to go!

Well let’s just say that Pinterest does make these things look so easy! 

Firstly, the baby was more interested in the tray than squishing the paint around to make some beautiful art. Even me demonstrating didn’t help. 

More interested in picking up the tray and paper than painting!

Also, paint from Poundland… you certainly get what you pay for. It’s very watery so soaks through the paper. 

I’ve since seen a version where you use a zip-lock bag rather than cling film, and tape it to a window or high chair tray. That does seem fiddly but I may give it a go some day. I was able to make something from the ‘art’ though… 

From this…

… to some artwork for the baby’s bedroom wall.
