We also added some materials to go along with painting so that baby can explore other elements whilst painting. We used shapes and bubble wrap and picked some leaves.
Worried about the mess? We know messy art projects for babies aren’t always the easiest, especially if you like having a clean house. If you want this to be a floor activity it’s always best to have wipeable floor mats.
Or if you do it on a high chair then the IKEA antilop highchair is VERY easy to clean. And just put towels on the floor if you don’t have any mat.
When little ones have some messy play at home its nice to strip them down to their nappies and let them get messy!
