    I just went out and did these with my 3 year old son and the little neighbor girl (7) and they both LOVED it!!! The texture of the paint is really cool and makes for some awesome pictures. They even had fun sprinkling the paint on the rocks around our sidewalk. It was a really fun boredom buster for sure! Thank you for sharing this fantastic idea.
