My children love to paint. Being the OCD mother that I am, painting day causes me more stress than about any other activity we ever do.
I used to put a little bit of each color of paint on a paper plate. A couple of months ago, I had the idea to use some empty baby food containers. This made painting much cleaner. It also made it so the children could pass the paint to each other with less mess. I really liked it and thought I would pass it along to you all in case you are like me.
