My daughters love to color and paint at the kitchen table. We keep art supplies in little containers on a lazy susan. When it's time to color, I just place it in the center of my table.
Recently I've added glue sticks. I had no idea these would be such a hit with my 2 year old daughters. Unfortunately, they haven't quite figured out the purpose of a glue stick. So far they've just smeared purple glue all over their papers with squeals of delight. Look at that huge blob of purple glue...that's gotta be good for something. That's what I call art!
Lest you think I'm a wasteful mother, I'll have you know that Target and Wal-Mart are selling these great purple glue sticks in sets of 2 for only 22 cents! We've stocked up. This will have to be a yearly event in our home.
