Tummy Time Painting

Updated: Mar 25, 2020

Help Make Tummy Time More Enjoyable For Your Pint-Sized Picasso!

Many of my friends have expressed to me how their little ones dislike #TummyTime and that it usually ends in tears (sometimes for both the infant and parent). Tummy Time Painting is a creative and exciting way to engage your moody Monet. This #SensoryActivity is also great for independent sitters and toddlers!

Also, Mother’s Day & Father’s Day are right around the corner! This No-Mess Tummy Time Painting (emphasis on the No-Mess) would be the perfect gift to give!

What You Will Need:

*I've linked the Amazon items we used for you below!

2. Canvas or Crayola Paint Paper

3. Gallon Ziploc Bag

4. Scissors

*Optional: Scrapbook Sticker Letters to write a special message.

Step 1: Randomly squeeze quarter-sized dollops of paint on the white canvas or paint paper.

Step 2: Next, gently slide canvas into a gallon ziploc bag.

Step 3: Zip your bag closed, so paint is not to leak.

Step 4: Let your little artist smudge the colorful paints with their fingers, elbows, feet and even their face! (At one point, Noah gave his painting a big kiss!)

Step 5: Remove from Ziploc bag using scissors. Cut along the seams of the bag.

Step 6: Lay flat to dry.

*If you opted to utilize Scrapbook Sticker Letters, carefully peel and remove them at this time.

All-in, after my Michaels coupon, the supplies cost $15. However, a handmade gift is priceless!

If you decide to try this Sensory Activity, I'd love to hear about your experience! Please leave a comment below or tag me, @slayathomemama, in your post on Instagram.
