We enjoyed tactile foot play earlier in the week with foot sensory bins, and continued the theme yesterday evening. This game would no doubt be even better on a bigger piece of fabric outside on a sunny day, but we made do on a rainy day with the bathroom floor and a plain white t-shirt from the craft store!
First, Travis chose his colors, and we filled a big bin with a generous portion of each.
I started out painting his foot one color at a time, and then he would stamp on the white shirt.
After a while, he wanted to paint his feet himself – and then painted his knee as well, to which I could only shrug, ‘why not?’. Then of course he had to try standing in the paint! (Note: hold your child carefully, paint is slippery). I would lift him out and place him on the t-shirt to take a few steps each time before he climbed back in the bin.
In retrospect, I wish we’d done this to music so he could have danced around, but I still loved our final product.
