You can make your very own handheld paint palette using a plastic lid and plastic bottle caps. Use one larger bottle cap in the center to mix colours. I used a Cool Whip lid, water bottle caps, and one sports drink cap. Once you puncture the hole for them, this can be a great palette for kids to make, then utilize while they paint!
Total Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 1 palette
1 plastic lid
1 X-acto knife or scissors
4 small bottle caps
1 large bottle cap
Use your marker to trace the large bottle cap onto the plastic lid near the edge.
Cut out the hole.
Place glue on the top of the large bottle cap.
Glue it down on the other side of the hole.
Glue down the other bottle caps around the lid.
Fill the little bottle caps with paint. Slip your thumb through the hole and lift the palette to your workstation.
Use the big bottle cap to mix colours. Paint away!
