Baby Jumper Paintings

Kali enjoys watching Logan do art but I've been trying to come up with more ways to involve her. Her baby finger painting went well so it was time to try another baby painting experiment! 
Materials:
Hard surface: we did this on the sidewalk, if you put a tablecloth down you could do it inside
Large paper: We used five fingerprinting papers (glossy on the backside) taped together with masking tape
Washable paints: We kept it simple and used red and blue so she could mix them together to get purple
Baby Jumper

Kalia is now almost eight months. This would be a great first baby painting project, especially if you are worried about your child getting too messy or eating the paint (although you can make edible paint!

Setting up the paper:

 Look at those cute chubby legs!
 Kali's finished project! Logan was very impressed that she made purple!
 Not to be left out, Logan also made some footprint art!

The clean up was fun too! Logan used his spray bottle on his and Kali's feet

And w he got to use the hose to clean the sidewalk...

I LOVE this! It is so hard to find good art activities for the babies. Too bad my youngest is too big for the jumper. Maybe I will just put paint on his knees and hands and let him crawl on paper! haha! :)
