When I picked up Beck from a babysitter the other day, I was surprised when she handed me a completed painting. I told her she was brave for pulling out paints with a toddler — and then she shared her clever, mess-free method. Here’s what she did:
She applied dots of paint to the sheet of paper, then placed the paper in a plastic zip bag and closed it shut. Then Beck happily played with the paint through the plastic bag and created his own little piece of art — without getting a stitch of paint on himself.
Genius! I’m going to give it a shot.
