A great present idea for grandparents or a unique piece for your own home.
This is a favourite in our house, $10 Canvas, $5 worth of paints and a $2 pack of paintbrushes all from Red Dot. Either you or your child can paint the base layer, I would recommend giving it a bit of time to dry between swapping colours especially if your child is like mine and insists on drawing one big blob in the middle of the canvas and turning everything poo coloured. We usually have two canvas pieces going at the same time so one can dry a bit while she is busy on the other. This is definitely an OUTSIDE activity!
