Making a Masterpiece out of a Kids "masterpiece"

Every kid loves to mess around with a little poster paint right? Well my 2 year old definitely does!

Problem # 1: It usually makes a mess
The Fix: I suggest stripping the child to diaper/underwear, and place them somewhere that's not close to carpet.

Problem #2: The "masterpiece" is usually not something you want hanging around the house because..well...eegghhmm...it's done by a toddler :)

The Fix: This brilliant idea!! Make a Masterpiece out of your child's "masterpiece"!
