When my kids were toddlers, I got a set of Do-A-Dot paints as a birthday present and quickly became a huge fan. Because the tube are big, they can easiliy be held by little hands. And the best part of them is that there is very little mess. The kids get the fun of painting without me spending thirty minutes cleaning up. I have found the regular set to be totally washable and the Neon set is "mostly" washable, but we had an issue where the bright green didn't come off a white shirt. The paints can also stain there hands, but will usually wear off by the next day.
