Happy 5 Months to my baby boy! I have seen so many amazing changes in the last month and can't wait to see what he learns during his 5th month of life. I have been so anxious to try paint with him so now that we have a highchair, I thought it was time to give it a go! I placed four generous squirts of paint inside a ziplock bag and used painters tape to secure it to the high chair tray. In truth, I think this activity would be better towards the end of 5 months or at 6 months as he enjoyed it after some time but had no idea what to do with it at the beginning. At first, the tape's texture around the edges was more fascinating to him then the actual paint splats but after showing him with my finger and a toy what he could do he started to scratch around in the paint and was happy to do so for several minutes. I will be trying this again along with other variations as he gets a little older and as the high chair becomes more "normal" to his everyday. Did you try this with your 5 month old? If so, how did your baby react?
