Vege Painting with Lady Fingers

I was cooking curry with some lady fingers last weekend.  While chopping the heads of the lady fingers, I thought it would be nice to let the kids have some fun with vege paintings.  At least this time round I don't have to waste so much of the vegetables.  I used to buy a whole lady fingers, cut them into half and use it for vege painting.  
I use some crayola paint and let the kids have some fun painting with the top of the lady fingers.  We don't normally do paintings at home as it was a bit messy.  However, after I have used the crayola paint, I find it easy to clean as compared to other paints.  We don't even have to use soap to wash away the paint.   Although it was a little pricey but it saves me a lot of hassle cleaning up.
 My lil prince had lots of fun painting and as for lil princess, she was just messing around with the paint.  This activity sure keeps both of them occupied for some time.  We hope to do more of these activities at home in future :P.  One of my new year resolution this year was to have more Play N Learn activities at home for the kids.  Hopefully I will have the time to do that *keeping my fingers cross* ^__^.

  2. The next time I cook lady's fingers, I will remember not to throw away the top part, thanks for the good tip :) I've yet to let Chloe try this because like you, I'm afraid of the mess too.
