A good idea

Paint pots for toddler painting.

Rather than using conventional paint pots (which you have to buy) for painting with toddlers, make use of what you find in the recycle bin.  Yoghurt pots or fabric softener lids are good, but egg cartons are even better.  Don't put a lot of paint in, you can always top up and since toddlers don't remember to wash their brush each time, it's going to end up sludge coloured pretty quickly anyway.  A plate or a foil quiche tray is good as a mixing palette.

The best thing - at the end of the painting session you only need to wash the brushes and the apron - the paint pots and mixing palette can be thrown away ... unlike the work of art!
