Okay, I changed the title from “kids” to “toddlers”. This does work well for smaller kids who can still be ‘tricked’ though. :)
If you’re like me, you are probably crazy. It’s okay, friend.
I have major anxiety issues when it comes to the messes my kids make. I’m working very hard on breaking free of this, trust me. I know it’s not fair to keep them from doing what kids do and I definitely don’t want to stifle their creativity. But for those days when they want to paint and I don’t necessarily want to stress and hover over them during the entire process to make sure paint isn’t getting everywhere, this quick and easy project is a savior.
(It’s not the most exciting kid project in all the universe, but for days when mom is sick, HALLELUJAH!)
I seriously need more things like this in my life if I ever expect to live to 30.
For the slightly older kids who know this isn’t actually painting, have them throw some glitter in the bag with the paint and tell them to squish it around and make some galaxy art. Hey, whatever works!
