I don't use this idea now but when I was stuck for time with large classes, I
had made tempera "sets" using small baby food jars kept in a shoe box (one
set for each table of 4-6). I think I could fit about 8 colors in a box. What
was nice was that the kids could just cap the jars and then stack the boxes
in a cabinet, for storage. The paint stayed well and I only had to fill them
every few months. The class set up time was just minutes--- clean water was
in a plastic gallon jug with the spout cut off but the handle remaining on
each table. They never had to change the water.
