Megan and Painting

In addition to coloring, Megan loves using paint to express herself. Megan spends hours covering herself in paint and occasionally paints blobs and streaks on her paper covered easel. Megan uses all different kinds of paint brushes and types of paint to create her art. One day I found a box filled with really nice, but very old, looking paint and opened one up for Megan to use as a real treat. After painting for a good length of time, I took her by the hand and lead her to the bathroom to wash up. After several minutes of scrubbing her hands I noticed that the paint was not coming off. It was then I realized that she was painting with oil based paint. Megan still asks to paint with those pretty permanent paints every once in a while.
