Pudding and play

My friend Shannon came up with idea to let the kids get messy this week at playgroup and use pudding as finger paint. We had the kids in swim suits (crazy how it snowed just a few days ago) and let them go at it. Jackson loved it. He had fun "painting" but even more fun eating. He seriously consumed a ridiculous amount of pudding. I must admit, when I was mixing it up it suddenly looked like the most delicious thing on the planet and I made a mental note to make it more often! Anyway, here are a few pics:

Still fairly clean and lots of room left in his tummy
Getting into it!

I'm sure my neighbor will love the little pudding handprints Jackson and Davis left on her porch!
I call this one the "money shot." ;)
His stomach was so full I was sure he was going to pop. I figured if I was going to let him use pudding as paint I should just let him go all out. That is what a responsible parent would do, right?

look at that belly!!! what a little chunk you have, i miss colby's chunk he's getting so thin now.

Beth said...

That looks like sooooo much fun. I'll have to do that this summer. Jackson's probably never going to eat pudding from a spoon when it can be so much fun to get so messy.

That is definitely the money shot! SOOO cute :) What a great idea.

Mark and Lachelle said...

Oh my gosh! I'm loving that "money shot!" I'm laughing so hard!! That is a classic!
And what an awesome ides for a play group....although, we should start an adult play group, and do the same thing! How fun would it be to play around in pudding! Seriously! Why do kids get to have all the fun?

awesome pictures! looks like he was busy! I love his belly--too cute!

Melissa said...

LOL, love the money shot! And I love a pudding painting play date idea. I've heard of using vanilla and adding a wee bit of food coloring to make the "paint."

After seeing this, I gotta let my little guy try it for his 2yr birthday party. Yay!
