Babies don’t exactly have the motor skills to make an artful presentation — but they do know how to make an adorable mess.
The mom used plain wooden ornaments she got from Amazon. She dropped a few dollops of red, green and white paint onto the ornaments. Next, she placed them in a ziplock bag.
“Just let your child play around with it, smear the paint around, mix it all up,” Chloé said.
Ellie sat in her high chair as she played with the ziplock bag. She shook the bag around and smudged the paint all over. The little one got to be as chaotic as any kid would be while fingerpainting without creating a mess.
When Ellie finished having her fun, Chloé removed the painted ornaments from the ziplock bag, added glitter and wrote a special message on the other side.
The homemade ornament is a great way to create a holiday present with sentimental value.
