We will be using thick slices of bread as our canvas and different versions of homemade “infant paints.”  This craft is intended as a squishy squeezy experience.  We don’t actually intend for the babies to snack on the bread but we making all the ingredients edible, just in case a few pieces get swallowed.

Jell-O Painting Infant Explorers!

Leovigilda with Jello Art WorkYesterday we had special guest Leovigilda Genova in our Infant Explores Program.  I had the privilege of showing Leovigilda the ins and outs of Jell-O painting.  We were all slipping and sliding around in abstract full sensory exploration art.  If you have never experienced this particular medium it is highly recommended.  The babies squished it in their fingers and toes.  Afterwards we all cleaned up to play with some infant toys and chase down some bubbles.  Thanks to Leovigilda for participating in our program today and to the happy children of the Katherine Tyra Library community for cutting loose and having fun.
