Finger painting fun

We're on "summer break" for the next month or so, just using the time to rest, enjoy time together, work on projects, and get ready for the new school year, but I've planned some fun activities for the kids and this was the first one...

I made up some finger paint using flour, salt, water and food coloring. The kids helped to mix up the colors and then they spent quite a bit of time "painting" while I cut out bibs for Miss J and Miss C at the kitchen counter. They all had so much fun, but there was really very little mess to clean up (except the light switch and bathroom sink that Mr. S also managed to paint!), but any messes were easy enough for the kids to handle (again, except for Mr. S who had paint up to his elbows!).
