I felt a little like MacGyver (minus the mullet).(Did I just date myself? Dang it.) I am all about using what you've got. Which brings me to the paint...
I had every good intention of buying finger paints, but did not get to it so he got to use my craft paint and a sponge brush. Which he promptly broke within 15 seconds and mama (aka MacGyver) taped back together. I decided to use a rock instead of paper because he loves rocks and I had visions of him crumpling the paint filled paper and throwing it on the hardwood. I covered the table and floor in newspaper ads and put the paint and the rock on one of those thick Hefty brand plastic disposable plates. I love them for painting because I just wash it off after use and can use it a hundred times or if I get lazy I can throw it away and start fresh next time.

We washed up and let the paint dry and then I coated it with Mod Podge (up until now I always thought it was Modge Podge until I saw it typed right next to the pic, weird, I like Modge Podge better!) so daddy could have a most fantastic paper weight for work. Which is quite ironic since daddy works for a software company and I'm not sure they deal with anything that is not electronic. Oh well!
