Paint




I always find painting a faff. I try and keep a stack of plastic tubs for the paint, which end up being thrown or separated (I have a bad habit of changing storage items and hence lose everything). I stole this idea from Veronica - an old baking tray. Genuis! I'd have never thought of that. Now, painting is quick and easy to prepare and I have some old aprons to cover Bella and Sam with - well, most of them.

  1. What a good idea - they have plenty of space to mix the paint too!! At school we use plastic shot glasses for pva gule - they are £1 for 50 from a Poundland shop. Let me know if you would like me to post some to you xx

  3. Excellent (and photogenic) idea. I don't enjoy painting with the kids...the mess! It takes longer to get it ready and clean up than they ever spend painting. I was so happy when Bella started nursery and asked to do painting every day, i felt i'd been let off the hook.

  6. does the paint wash out easy and you can still use the muffin tin for baking? it is a great idea. i use paper plates - wasteful i know... i have some old silicon muffin cups i think i'll use for this now. thanks for the tip! now, what's a faff?
