When I was in LA with the grands we had a finger painting session.
I tried to get Fox to make patterns in the paint with his fingers. He was more interested in experimenting with the texture of the paint on his fingers. I said you are supposed to rub the paint on the paper and then make patterns in it. he said ,"No, its finger paint its for fingers!" He did enjoy mixing colours on the paper.
Little brother, Banjo, copies everything Fox does. Wet wipes are the best invention since sliced bread.
