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

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…

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
