How do you let kids create colorful wooden painted toys?

First, I covered our table with a plastic tablecloth and got out a bag of sponge brushes and two paper plates.

I gave my daughter pink, orange, purple and fuchsia acrylic paint and a sponge brush.

I let them go to town making quite a mess and adding tons of color.  However, if you give them a selection of colors that all go well together, even if they mix all the colors – you will still end up with a gorgeous painted item!

While they both briefly napped, I got out my handy dandy gold foil paint pen and had a little fun adding some shimmer and sparkle to their wooden toys.
