Finger painting, kids simply love it! They love the texture in their hands, the designs they can make, and the way the colors swirl all around the paper. But let’s be honest, the mess is a lot less fun for Mommy to clean up.

This time, I decided to try out the ALEX Finger Paint Pumps, Finger Paint Paper and No-Mess Finger Paint Tray. Here it goes…

Lori was able to pump the paint out on her own. There were no drips or messy caps to screw back on. The paints were a good consistency and didn’t leak all over.… so far so good.

Her favorite part was mixing colors – a great learning tool. The colors were nice and bright. She also liked to draw in the paint with her fingers and erase it with the palm of her hand, doing it over and over!

Julie went to town, swooshing the paint all around her paper. The No-Mess Tray did a good job of keeping everything contained. The tray acts as a designated space for coloring and prevents the table from turning into a canvas! She really enjoyed getting her fingers all messy and making hand-prints on her paper.

The paint washed right off their hands with water and was super easy to wipe off from the table.  The girls had tons of fun and the cleanup was not so bad after all. I see more finger paint in our future…

Why I love this product:

  • Super washable, hands-on fun!
  • Teach colors and mixing
  • Enough supplies for multiple uses
  • Creative freedom – no instructions, no lines, just imagination and fun!

What do you think, will you give it a try? Take pictures and let me know how it goes!
