cabin fever preventer

So we don't risk going completely stir crazy this winter I've been trying to come up with a fun new activity for the kids to do nearly every day. Last week I set up no-mess finger painting on the floor. It's super easy just squirt a few different paint colors in a large ziploc bag (and glitter too if you have some!) and make sure it's tightly closed and there's no trapped air. Place a piece of white paper on the floor and lay the bag of paint on top then use masking tape to secure it down. That's it! 

Both kids loved it, Lucy and I talked about color mixing on hers for a while and then she danced on top of it, then she mixed some more. We've tried it the past by taping the bag to a window instead of the floor and that was fun too.
