I shared this incredible find on my instagram yesterday – but had to put it here too! I spotted this paint tray at the Dollar Tree and quickly scooped a couple up for myself. This would be the BEST art solution for the classroom. A place for individual paint (or glue, or small collage materials, or beads, or…) an easy to clean surface, and it closes so that children can come back to a project later. It’s like a preschool art miracle!
These are available in stores, but you can also order in bulk on the Dollar Tree website – a case of 24 at a time (it’s like they know what they’re doing…). I can’t recommend these enough, I think I would pick up one for each child and use some cricut vinyl to put their names on them – then they can keep them at the end of the year to encouraged continued art at home. How would you use them????
