My kids love to paint, and I’d allow them to do it almost anytime if it weren’t for the mess they leave behind – paint-stained fingers, clothes, and furniture. Even using washable paints, it can be an ordeal to clean up.

So consider this clever new way to paint – using ziploc bags so the paint stays off the kids. This is a great rainy-day weekday activity. Your kids can unleash their creativity, but you can still keep a lid on the mess.
