This started out as a simple paint a wooden butterfly (thank you, dollar bin at Michael's) and of course turned out to be a full-body exploration of paint and color

I just love how they get so into their work. They were very serious about the whole affair. 

I am starting to get smarter about these things.  I put out the paint, already poured (just a little teeny bit) and used cotton swabs as the brushes.  Not that that mattered, within a few minutes they'd discarded the cotton swabs for fingers.  Then hands.  Then whole bodies.  Yes, they made belly-button prints.  And the mess was quite minimal since there was only about 1 tbs of paint in each of 6 egg-carton wells.
