Tips on Tuesday: Mess Free Artists

We are all about making messes in our house! And, Steedly School has given us lots of opportunities to do that in a constructive way...but no less messy :)

One way we have figured out how to take some of the stress away from the mess making, is by making as much stuff disposable as possible (not very green, I know).

For painting, we have found that leftover egg cartons work great. A dozen eggs makes for 2-3 different "pallets" to hold paint in a stable, and no clean up way.

Happy Mess Free Painting ...:)


Quick clean-ups after messy fun ..it works for me!

  1. I like this idea!! We've used yogurt containers & pie tins, but I like how this allows you to separate colors! :)
    Have a great week!
