Finger Painting Fun

I broke out the art supplies today so my little boy could make a birthday card for his daddy.  We had new fingerpaints and brush paints that we bought for 50% off at a back to school sale.  It was worth spending the money rather than use my personal art supplies due to the non-toxicity of the Crayola formulas.  I think he ate more than he got on the paper! 

He had a blast and was thrilled that he got to jump into the tub afterwards to play in the water.  Double score for him!

Frugal Tip of the Day:  Shop for your toddlers stuff when the big kids stuff goes on sale.  I couldn’t believe the bargains they had!  If you don’t wait for the sales at least use a 40% off coupon from Michaels or AC Moore.  You can usually find them online and can print them at home.  I hate to buy things brand new, but the Crayola products are worth it for the ease with which they clean up and also so I don’t have to worry when he inevitably puts everything in his mouth.
