Check out this fantastic cardboard house by Color Me House! We have had the best time decorating the house with E. Each day after work, we decorate a little more. It is almost complete, and will post photos soon. For now, here are a few on the first day we had it assembled. E loves the house and wants to play in it often.
This would be a fun project at a children's party.
Also, see below for an alternative use for formula dispensers.
Formula dispenser turned paint cup!
We used it both with the lid on for one color at a time, and then took the lid off and let her mix it up. Both ways, the paint was contained well.
Paint tip: Tempera Paint is great, but recently I heard a tip from our wonderful preschool minister. She suggested putting a tiny bit of dish soap in the paint and this makes it even easier to wash out of clothing. Great idea!
