I've used waxed paper- throw it away at the end of class- no washing! Also,
I read somewhere, maybe on this list, to use magazine pages (the slick type)
I use this with the little ones (k-4) It is easy for me to clean up. I
don't know about you, but I have an endless supply of catalogs. I just cut
the catalog down the middle. I keep a drawer full for the students to use
to mix paint. They hold up pretty well.
I don't feel guilty about throwing them away, and am recycling to boot!

Subject: what to mix paint on
Always wanted to ask this but I always forget. What do you use to have
students mix paint on. I don't mean to store or hold a fair amount of mixed
colors (like plastic palette with the wells) but to actually mix small
quanties on. Disposable palettes are expensive to me, so i've used paper
plates but I go through them so fast.
I"m thinking of some sort of plastic or plexiglass palette that can be
washed by students at the end of class.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
