Painting with your feet is not only fun, exciting and a bit messy but it is also great for gross motor development. It takes core strength and leg muscle control to mix the colors together.

Touch is one of our most powerful senses, by feeling the paint between their toes this activity will be a fun and impactful experience while discovering new colors.
