- Ziploc bags
- Tape (Painters tape works well)
- Sheet of white paper
These bags can be used again and again. After the kids did their painting at the table, we moved them to the fridge. And after they get bored with that I'm going to peel them off and save them for another "I'm bored, Mommy!" kind of day.
