Baby Painting Craft

When my 4 year old was a baby I tried to do a lot of crafts with him and he now loves crafts.  I realized recently that I don’t have any crafts done by the baby.  

I know, what kind of crafts can a baby do, right?  

I was trying to decide what to do for my husband for Valentine’s Day from the baby.  I decided on a baby painting.  I originally found the idea on Rachel Bishop Designs via Pinterest and put my own spin on it.

I used washable, safe paints and just added a few drops of paint to a white piece of paper.  I let the baby go at it and play in the paint.  He loved it and had a blast.  He didn’t even try to eat it, which surprised me!  

I took a picture of him doing the painting and printed it on my printer since I did it on such short notice.  I had an 8x10 frame laying around so I attached the photograph to his painting and Viola!  

I had an easy-made Valentine that even a baby can do!  I plan on doing a variation of this for different holidays for grandparents too.  It is easy to do and a great keepsake.
