I braved it and did some painting with the kids. We had so much fun. They each picked out two colors (I might get more brave in the future and allow more colors) and had a blast painting. Then we painted their hands and made hand prints. They were both fascinated by having their hands painted, but actually preferred to have them cleaned off. This made me want to do more crafts/painting with the kids.
The masterpieces were for Daddy's birthday present.
