Move over Jackson Pollock her Comes EMILY!!!
While I was taking care of Juliette Emily was sitting at the table drinking from a straw and I could hear the sound of bubbles blowing in the cup. This reminded me of a activity I saw in the The Toddlers Busy Book: 365 Creative Games and Activities to Keep Your 1 1/2- to 3-Year-Old Busy , by Trish Kuffner. So I decided to give it a try.
I watered down some tempera paint so that it would spread out easily and cut a few slits in the top of the straw to prevent the paint from going in Emily's mouth. Then I gave Emily all the supplies told her what to do and she was very happy to get right to creating with her straw!
