No Mess Finger Painting and Color Mixing!

This was a very simple and fun activity and the best part was NO MESS!  Yep a mess free way to finger paint!  :) 

I had seen this idea and I just spent the last 15 minutes trying to find the person to thank them and link them to this post and I can't find it!  :(  ANYONE know???  I like to give credit when credit is due.  When I saw this I thought "why, did I not think of that?"  

What you need to recreate your own mess free painting experience.  
-Big Zip Lock Bags
- White Card Stock Paper
- Paint

Then put the paper in the bag and add a few drops of paint and zip it up!  Children of all ages can enjoy this activity!  Allow them to mush the two colors together.  Practice writing letters or numbers or even fun designs.  :) 

I did not have all the primary colors but I was still able to teach my son and daughter color mixing.  

We tried blue and yellow to make green, pink and yellow to make orange, blue and pink to make purple, and lots of colors to a darker color.  

THANKS to autonomous comment they found the blogger who had done this.  Thanks to The Hippie Housewife!

If you have a child like mine, you may want to also tape the top of the ziploc back to help keep it closed! My daughter's VBS did a small version of this yesterday. They, thankfully, taped the top together, so it made it about 24 hours before popping the bag! :)
My boys loved doing this, I did a version of this where we taped it to the window and they could paint against the window. I don't know that you got it from me. Thank you for posting on Saturday Show and Tell. I hope you'll be back this week.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
