Painting with kids:

Squirt paint into a large 7 day pill container. It keeps colors separated and you can close the lids and save it for next time. No more dried up and wasted paint.

Eating popsicles:

Save plastic lids from food containers, cut a small hole in the middle and poke the popsicle stick through the hole. The lid catches the drips–no sticky hands or floors.

Too much art:

Kids generate a ton of art and you probably don’t want to save it all. Cut up pieces to use as gift tags and cards.
