Modified paper cups as paint holders
I’ve found a great hack to keep our painting projects easy to clean up and manageable. When we get out the liquid paints for my 2 year old, I pour each color into a Dixie cup. The cups are just a little too tall for the job though, leading to tipping and making it hard for her to see how much she has or what color is inside. To make it more manageable, I cut off the top inch or so of the cup. This way it’s just the right height for a little paint dish. When she’s done painting, all the cups go straight to the trash!
