kids painting

Little ones are always wanting to paint in my house.  It isn't that I mind the painting, it's that I mind the mess afterwards.  I buy the washable paint (duh), lay down newspaper, and make sure they have on an old shirt, or a trash bag over their good clothes.  Well, let's be truthful here....the clothes thing is just one more step that I don't have time for. 

It seems like every 3 out of 5 times they paint, someone spills the cup of brush water.  It soaks right through the newspaper and you know the rest.  So, I am happy to report to you that this method has worked every time and no more soggy newspaper mess.

Take a pizza box and break it in half.  Like so.....
