Activities for Babies: Painting with Colored Potato Flakes

My 13-month-old is in THAT STAGE. You know the "Everything-In-The-Mouth" one.

It's meant that I haven't been able to do many Art Projects with the 3-year-old for the last few months (unless the baby is sleeping).

I finally decide to try out a simple, edible paint that BOTH girls can use.

Enter Instant Potato Flakes.

All you do is add water to some instant potatoes and some food dye.

The first batch turned out to be more of a play-dough material than paint.  Honestly, the 13-month-old only played with it for about 5 minutes. But, she was very engaged for those few minutes.

It was a MUCH big hit with the 3-year-old. She spent at least 3 hours enraptured with this new material.

I would definitely call that a hit! It's nice finding an activity that they can both to together. (The peace may only last 5 minutes....but....boy is it golden.)
