Enter my mommy's awesome idea! I had to share, mostly because I was jealous I hadn't thought of it first. Here I was digging through my craft box and she was already working with my daughter on these!
Just in case you can't tell... it's simply Q-tips cut in half. We put clean unused ones in a paper cup and gave the kids a second paper cup to dispose of the dirty ones! So much easier than paint brushes. We always have Q-tips on hand! Thanks mom! You are amazing!!!!!
