What do you do with all that left-over paint?

in Left-Over Paint, Quick Tips for Preschool Teachers

Often times when I am preparing for an activity, I pour what I think will be a fair amount of paint into a bowl or dish for the children to use. I try not to over-do it so the paint will not go to waste but inevitably, I end up with left-over paint that I just hate to toss away…

So I got to thinking that I could use these little plastics containers to save up some of this left-over paint….

I bought these at the grocery store – they only hold about 1/2 cup. I use them for a variety of activities like holding glue and cotton swabs so I decided to use them for the left-over paint too…

Even after the paint gets all mixed up, it can create some unusual colors that I might not ordinarily have or make myself. I think they will be fun to pull out for something down the road but no plan yet what I will do. But it is nice to know I have them ready to go and that I won’t just have to toss those odd colors of paint away…
