I knew this morning when I woke up that it was just going to be one of those days. When the boy woke up he solidified the fact. He was INSANE all morning! I decided to take to my arsenal of kid projects (aka pinterest) and occupy every possible second of his day. I stumbled across “Milk Paintings” (http://flutterflutter.ca/2012/03/17/spring-break-diy-milk-art/). These were fun and a great way to use up some old milk that we had sitting in the fridge. They were really easy as well.
All you need is:
Milk (2% or whole)
cheap liquid dish soap
Pour a thin layer of milk onto the plate
Add a few drops of food coloring to the milk
Slowly drip a few drops of the dish soap onto the plate and get ready. The magic happens quickly. You go from the picture above to this:
When the swirling stopped, I handed the little one a fork and let him experiment with mixing colors:
We made three or four different paintings and he enjoyed every second of it!
