One thing that was becoming difficult was the sheer amount of painting they would do on any giving day. The amount of papers drying all over the counters at night left me to look for a solution. I really wanted to get this beautiful drying rack:
The price and the amount of space it takes kept me from buying it. Yesterday night, just by accident, I took a look at a cookie grid and knew it was a great alternative... It was a lot more affordable, it took less space, and in the future I could actually bake some cookies! Thanks to my shopping companion (I know you are reading this!) I was able to locate the perfect size one. Perhaps I can inspire others to take out their own cookie grids, or buy them for only $9.99 at Meijers. This morning my kids discovered it and decided they needed to paint right after breakfast.
The three tier cookie grids fits perfectly in our art rack's shelf. It just happens to be black like my rack!
In case you want the brand I got: Perfect Results
