I believe that paint should be available at preschool everyday. Today we had paint on the tables to stamp with cookie cutter cars. One of the girls walked up to ask when we would put paint at the easels. I told her that after outside time, I would get some out. She informed me of the colors she wanted and I pulled them out of the cabinets. Unfortunately the purple looked like it had settled. I keep all of my paint in coffee creamer containers because I have to grab it from the art closet upstairs from huge bottles.So I grabbed the bottle and shook it up when all of a sudden I had an explosion of royal purple paint! FYI my skin is still stained after a shower.
