Crayola has never let us down, when thinking about our tiny ones who are just starting to create with their hands. The Easy Clean Fingerpaint Set is all the fun of finger painting, but without the mess.
Just squirt your paint on your artist’s paper, close the board with locking lid, and your toddler can experience the fun of finger painting on top of the flexible, see through covering. The paint and paper are contained making this 100% mess free!
Little artists get the sensation of creating something while you can sit back and focus on language building because you know you won’t be ruining your tablecloth or their shirt. My 18-month old just loved exploring color mixing with her index finger, and then whole hands. We used verbs like press, push, rub, poke, and mix, and while repeating these verbs multiple times when painting, she was able to learn new words! As Maria Montessori said, “what the hand does, the mind remembers.”
Clean up is a cinch! Just wash your screen under the sink and voila! The set includes three [washable] primary colors, perfect for mixing and adding to the language rich conversation. The Crayola Easy Clean Fingerpaint Set is the perfect gift for your toddler this holiday.
