I was at Michael's store awhile back and found these paint sticks that I thought may work well for the little ones to use.
They are perfect for them to grip in their fists.
They glide really nicely.
There was some cardboard boxes in the recycling bin so I cut it up instead of using paper.
The older little was very willing to show the twins how to do it
as well as covering her now.
The mess is minimal.
You can see some of the paint on her arm from leaning on her artwork.
It washes off very easily.
Lots of different marks, some made by me too, I couldn't resist trying them.
