Finger paints

Finger paints

When was the last time you used finger paints? Can you still remember the feel of the paint and the joy of making squishy squiggles? The characteristic smell? Seeing your painting up on you mom and or dad's refrigerator? A friend bought me finger paints as a joke when I was in college. I kept bringing them with me when I moved from place to place for years afterwards. One day, it was just time to use them or throw them away. I used them. It is a wonderful feeling and I can only describe it as meditative but messy. Very relaxing. And if you pop your finger painted masterpiece into one of those cheap Ikea frames, it looks pretty fancy. Alternatively, if you have kids or have the need to make kids happy, get them some and you can let them enjoy something wonderful too.
