We didn't use all the paint in the morning and just covered the muffin tin with wax paper and put it in the fridge to paint again after nap. A couple of the paints were harder than others, so I just added a touch of water to those ones.
Encourage thinking outside the box.
Use materials in a different way and encourage your children to do the same. Instead of using a "real" paintbrush, use a pine branch. Instead of a playdough kit from the store, use the garlic press. Don't limit experiences by what you "think" they should look like.
