I know painting seems kind of messy. It definitely has to be supervised. Keep a box of wipes handy. But there's just nothing like it. It's very therapeutic.


You know what's also therapeutic? Barrettes.

I've not yet run across a kid who doesn't love painting.

Here is E's road:
I don't know what happened up there in the right hand corner. But it doesn't look good! ;-)

I recommend this paint. You can find it at Wal-Mart and Target, for cheaper than that link.
We put it on a sturdy paper plate that has a lip.

S likes to do her own thing, so first she colored, and then when everyone else was about done, she dove into the painting.

I rarely use smocks, but you could. I find that if I'm sitting right there with a baby wipe in my hand, the mess never gets too out of control. I just don't know that I will EVER stop buying baby wipes. Even though we are technically past that stage now.

  1. Old "daddy shirts" are our paint smocks (also used for spaghetti night...), and the kids think it's extra funny to be in Daddy's black t-shirts.

    Oh, and I second you on never giving up baby wipes. I tried to convince my husband to take them with him on deployments(no dice).
