Cabell sent us some dot paints, which immediately jogged my memory that my friend Amanda had recommended them about a year ago even though I forgot all about it at the time.
The kids love them - and I love them, too - much quicker set-up and clean-up than regular painting!
Also, they are exactly like the Bingo markers I yearned to play with that my Grandma Wanda would never let me touch.
James is hard at work, but Amelie looks horrified that I'm taking a photo.
She also got us a set of board books based on Greek mythology. This one is about Midas, who wants everything to be yellow, until he paints his stuffed dinosaur.
