A few weeks ago, I decided to try some painting with Elias. I made my own paint, since I knew he would end up eating it. I simply mixed flour and water until I got the consistency I wanted, then added food coloring. The result was somewhat 3-D - it has a nice bumpy texture and has as much sensory value dried as it did wet. So much excitement!

First time eating the paint. There were many more times to follow.

Ditching the paintbrush. I think he enjoyed using his fingers more than a brush.

This was after his final taste of the paint. He was ready to be done at this point.

And the bathtub makes everything better :)
