My grand children love to paint. I broke out the acrylics, they set up 2 easels & grabbed a canvas to
paint on & spent hours painting. They also learned how to mix colors to get the exact color they wanted (they were amazed they could do this). I highly recommend a canvas drop cloth. I bought a 9 x 12 feet cloth @ lowes for about $10. This was money well spent when you have little ones who want to paint. The also had fun sculpting.
