Lil Tip: Smocks For Wee Artists

What do kids love most about art? Usually it's the mess that they can create while working on their mini Mona Lisa. Tots delight in finger painting, marking their hands, squishing play-doh and chalking up sidewalks. What moms don't find quite so endearing are the stained clothes that are often the bi-product of such successful crafts.

Instead of ponying up cash to protect those precious threads, take one of dad's old long-sleeved button-up shirts and slide it on your wee one with the buttons up the back. Roll the sleeves up and let the lil Van Gogh go!
