Watercolor Painting Made Easy

My four year old is an artist. Just ask him. He'll tell you all about it. His favorite medium right now is watercolor painting. My sister gave me this great tip for providing the little Picasso with lots of clean, un-spillable water to wet his brush with.

Just fill a six hole muffin tin with water. Fill each hole half way and let them paint to their heart's content. It can't be tipped over (accidentally anyway) and there are 6 pools of clean water for them to use.

Give it a try and for more great WFMW tips head over to Rocks in My Dryer and read them all.

What a great tip!! Part of the reason I don't let the kids paint is the big mess. Wonder if that would work for bubbles too?
