This week I was working on painting some cupboard doors in our house, and Molly got very excited, and wanted to try painting. I am still a little nervous about her painting in the house, but I came up with the idea to paint without paint.
Instead of using paint, I gave her a little dish of water and some brushes. She had a blast "painting" a cut open brown paper bag. The wet "painted" parts showed up like she had painted them. She loved doing this, and I loved hardly having to clean it up.
We are looking forward to projects using real paint soon. If anyone has a good washable kids paint recommendations, let me know. Thanks!
