I'm also being thrifty with the paint palette, using the base of an old baby food purée freezing station- but you could also use a muffin tray or an ice cube tray, or even an old egg carton.
I love watching Hunter paint- he has now started telling me stories about what he is painting. He painted some wheels, a cats ears, whiskers and tail and then a spider.
Best of all I love to capture his hand prints- lots of Hunter's art gets used as wrapping paper and stationary but the ones with hand prints get kept for me to weep over when he's fully grown.
Bless this mess,
