We let Elizabeth mess around with paints and a paintbrush this past week. We put her in an old t-shirt of my mom's and stuck her in the highchair in order to try to limit the mess.
This was pretty successful, except that our highchair tray is now rather pink in spots. Elizabeth loved painting, especially the part where she got to rinse her brush. We had one rather teary moment when she discovered that paint isn't too yummy. Luckily it was "non-toxic"... Hopefully she has now learned that we don't eat paint.

What a cutie! Looks like she really enjoyed herself. (I'm shocked she didn't enjoy eating the paint. All of my babies always have. LOL)

What a brave mommy you are! "Mess around" was obviously the correct choice of verb... :)

Glad to hear she's pinkified her chair to her liking -- the girl's a girlie girl! LOL! :D
Love the painted little fingers -- too cute!
