This is an activity that will engage youngsters without making a terrific mess. No paint or glue to smear on freshly painted or wallpapered walls. No sharp scissors to jab into the upholstery or hack at the curtains. If the technique is properly modeled for the children, every child will be able to be successful. And everybody has some sort of towel already, so there is no expense for this pleasure.
