I spent part of yesterday ordering more art supplies for the kids. We go through lots of paint quickly in our house, a lot of which goes right down the drain. The problem is the pouring. The kids are exuberant about pouring the desired colors into small dishes and before I know it, there is a bowl full of mixed up sludge-colored goop that nobody wants to re-use. Then I saw this terrific idea over at Let's Explore.
Amy shares with us her great idea of storing paints in little squeeze bottles. The kids can help themselves and squeeze out a litte bit at a time. She also suggests using small palettes for less waste. So simple, right? For more details about Amy's great idea, check out her blog Let's Explore.
