The Neat and Tidy Artist

Is your little artist leaving supplies all over the house? Paints, brushes, paper, and other materials need storage compartments—not only to keep the area clean, but also to keep everything within arm’s reach.  Help your child practice both art and organization at the same time with a few crucial components: three-ring binders, lots of cans to hold brushes, and paper towels for cleanup. After your child is done creating, have her return her art supplies to their proper compartments so that everything’s at the ready the next time inspiration strikes.
