This was definitely cheap, easy and fun! For Naters (she's 45 months old) using the paint chips was much easier for her to do than the tissue paper squares which is a too flimsy to hold up to very much handling (when wet with glue) Another thrifty tip: I got these plastic souffle cups with lids in bulk for $3.00. i also have the craft cups from oriental trading co. (which i do like) but I like the souffle cups better. they can be washed and reused; i like the small quanity they hold (great portion control for crafting) and when you put the lid on you can save glue or paint for next use. So glad i got them! You'll like them too!
Thanks for looking!
