My husband had a great idea for our 1yr old. He let him to do some finger painting with mustard and ketchup, this way it would be ok if he ate some (not that he would lije the mustard!) and it will easily wash off the clothes, table, and floor. 🙂
Thought I’d pass that idea along! You could use many other things, such as BBQ sauce, mayonnaise, peanut butter, etc.
