Finger Painting

I made some non-toxic, eco-friendly finger paints for Piper today. Lime green, turquoise, and purple. Since falling asleep in the car meant a real nap was pointless. Piper spent more time in bed talking about the neighbor girl than actual sleeping, or trying to fall asleep. Instead she stripped down to just the essentials, she'd probably disagree that a diaper is essential but..., and headed outside where clean-up is much easier to manage.

At first she didn't like it on her finger. Then thought it should go into her hair. That all passed quickly and she was plunging her hand to the bottom of the cup each time it opened and had the paper and herself sufficiently covered. Then off to wander the yard in her happy state of undress.

By the time all was said and done, she needed a full bath. Which she enjoyed nearly as much as the painting itself. Good news is that the paint washes off easily with a simple marinade in the bath tub, no scrubbing required. Lets hope it's the same for washing her diaper cover.
