The Babies have had lots of fun mark making using different tools.
They used brushes and rollers to create marks on the paper but also really enjoyed painting their own hands and feet, feeling the cold slimy texture and then pressing them on to the paper to create hand & foot prints. Sometimes when they tried to make a print there was a big extra blob of paint and the Babies loved using their hands or feet to move the excess paint around on the paper.
