I took Oscar to a ‘Messy Art’ class the other day at Play and can’t wait to go back today to pick up his first-ever painting, which needed 24 hours to dry.  They have an entire area dedicated to do-it-yourself art for toddlers with canvas covering the floor and huge, plastic smocks.  While I’ve surprised myself with the level of mess that I now tolerate having a boy, I may just have to draw the line when it comes to painting inside (either that or have an on-call cleaning service come post at-home art).  That was until I came across this cool looking easel.  I mean, maybe we can just limit painting to the kitchen only.
