And the color is Green

I knew I'd find a purpose for the milk jug tops I've been saving.
They make perfect circle stamps for Little One while he finger paints!
Color mixing and circle prints=Thursday afternoon fun.
With a runny nose, this little guy needs all the low key distractions I can whip up.
Fortunately for me the Internet provides me with many inspiring places to visit daily!
Check out my list in the side bar (if you haven't already).

I admire your creative perseverance - keeping those lids and allowing their presence to make their way into your creations. Happy Easter. XO VM

wonderful. we really are of similar mind. I, too, have been saving milk tops and all other plastic un-recyclable tops in the hopes of finding something creative to with them.

Thanks for yet another wonderful idea.

I did just check out your sidebar. I was needing inspiration like this (see my latest blog entry). Thanks!

Fun idea. I've been saving tops, too, so now I have a use for them. Thanks!

Do you use the fingerpaint paper for activities like this? I am always wondering how important all the "speciality" paper etc... is for my 3.5 yo! I taught for several years but always in schools where such luxuries were unheard of, so I am not up on all my necessities!

RE: Special Paper
No, Shannon, I do not use special paper, just whatever I have or can afford at the time. I usually buy paper in big packages when on sale. I don't think I've purchased 'finger paint paper' since my oldest was two! :)

Ah, yes, stamping and swirling. I have collected bottle lids too, and my daughter sorts, counts and stacks them. They don't always stack very well but she keeps trying. I think I need to start collecting some more. :)
