Traditional Finger Paint and Flour Finger Paint Recipe

With Summer has come more and more activities, painting being among them.  I love painting with Mason and he truly loves it too.  Toddlers by nature go through art supplies of all kinds quickly, and that includes paint.  Since Mason asks for it everyday, I figured I need to find a more cost effective way to provide my little man with this great sensory experience.  In case you are not crazy about getting messy with finger painting, remember that is also helps your child develop fine motor skills.
