I do finger painting with Max, watercolor too, play-dough, etc. But these activities are a little messy. I made Max one of these magic paint boards for a painting activity without the mess. I got the idea from Fo' Reals Mom. You can paint the special kind of paper with water, and then it dries in minutes so you can keep painting new pictures. I painted the frames blue and put a little foam board behind the brushstroke paper. I could only find the brushstroke paper on Amazon, when I asked in Blik and Michaels I got some blank stares.
Getting a temporary tattoo while we waited for the masterpiece to dry...
And begin again with the hardcore monkey tattoo for some street cred.
