The kids really like to paint so I am trying to work it into our weeks more.
I just bought new, cool, no-spill paint cups and color coded paint brushes to go with them (not pictured below.) So I'm very excited that we will get to paint more with hopefully less waste and the kids won't have to deal with washing their brushes in between each color anymore.
One reason I haven't encouraged very much painting before is that the mess gives me major anxiety, even though the paint I use is totally washable. But I have to remind myself, "They're kids. They're supposed to get messy. It's educational in so many ways! And besides that, it is really fun!"
