Foam letters and finger paints

As I mentioned before, I've been making the alphabet out of craft foam for Ben as we go along with each letter of the week.  This week we've been working on the letter G with the exception of our little time out for St. Patrick's day crafts.  He likes to play with the letters and eventually after he really learns what the letters sound like and whatnot, we might be able to spell out small words with them as well.  Here's what we have so far:
(They are not the neatest, but they were the best I could do...)

As I mentioned yesterday, Ben really loves the letters and asked me yesterday to do shapes for him as well.  I made these for him and maybe as we learn more, I'll make him more.

Last night, at Michaels, we bought finger paints.  Ben had so much fun with watercolors that I was excited for him to try the finger paints.  We tried them today for the first time.  It didn't turn out to be as messy as I was thinking or planning it to be.  Ben had a good time, but he's not crazy about getting his hands dirty.  We'll work on it more and hopefully he'll be less worried about a mess.  I sure wasn't worried.  We did it at the kitchen table.  We have a Mr. Clean magic eraser and Ben was wearing a paint shirt.  Also, messes to bother me.  I mean I do like a clean house, but messes can be cleaned up so making a mess is not a problem to me,  as long as you're having a good time.  Little Miss Sydney relaxed in her bouncy chair while Ben painted.
