Since Maizy was a tiny baby, I have searched through pinterest to find the perfect art projects to do with her. Before she was really strong I did several hand print projects with her. There are so many different projects to do which can be found by searching through pinterest. The baby hand print projects are great holiday gifts and house decorations.
I want to talk about a specific activity we have tried two times. We got the idea from pinterest. You put little dots of paint on a piece of paper then carefully put the paper in a zip-lock bag. It’s fun for babies and lets them experience sensory activity. She enjoyed spreading the paint around. On the plus side, it was mess free!
The first time we did this paint activity, Maizy was about 6 months old. She had just learned to sit up on her own and was learning how to control her hands during that stage. The first time, It seemed as if she was more focused on the texture of the paint under the bag.
The second time, she was about 9 months old. This time she could sit up on her own, crawl and control her hand movements. This time, she figured out how to spread the pain around very quickly. I could tell that she was more focused on getting the paint spread around and seeing the colors mix together.
I love these activities because it helps Maizy explore sensory, art and have fun. Also, it was really neat to see how much she grew, learned and developed in only 3 months. I highly recommend doing these fun little activities with babies. Its a blast!
