Finger Painting

Even though there is no snow by us quite yet, it sure feels like winter.  We were cooped up inside yesterday, and our usual toys and books were starting to bore Carter!  I looked around our house to see what else we could do and I remembered we had some finger paint in our craft drawer.  Of course I could only find three colors, but that was plenty for Carter!  They happened to be Thanksgiving colors, so we plan to make some cards with the pictures that Carter painted.

I sat him in his highchair and let him go to town.  Only one incident occurred where he tried to put the paint in his mouth… but he learned pretty quick not to do that again LOL.  One thing I knew I wanted to try with Carter was getting him to make handprints.  I have some hand prints from the last holiday season and even footprints we made.  It’s really neat to see how big he really has become!

This is such a simple activity, and with unpredictable midwest weather, you always need to have some tricks up your sleeves!  We had a blast painting so I knew I wanted to share this on my blog to give others some extra rainy day activities.  If you get a chance to paint with your little ones, I’d love to hear about it!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my Lifestyle Blog! Thank you so much for coming to my site to learn a little more about me and our family. I am 29 years old, (oh my goodness almost 30...), and have been married to my amazing husband, Jeff, for five years. I am also a mom! Carter James is our adorable, little blondie who is three, and Payton Jeanne is our baby girl who just turned one this past July. Bella is our yellow lab, and Chuckles is our cat. Of course I had to mention the fur babies because I'm sure they will come up in this blog at some point. I've been wanting to start a blog for quite some time now, and I think God finally gave me the courage to do it. I have always enjoyed writing, and while this is new to me, I'd love to share a little more about my life with you. My hope is for you to read this blog and feel like you're having normal conversation with me, so feel free to ask questions and make comments! I look forward to sharing our former NFL family life, mommy tips, recipes, favorite bible verses, and more. Looking forward to sharing the next play with you!
