DIY Paint Palette

My daughters 3rd birthday is coming up and every morning she wakes up and says, "It's my BIRTHDAY!"  Looks like this was the year to have a real party. not just the family party.  So the planning has started.  The only problem is she isn't "in" to any one thing.  I keep searching for a theme for her party but couldn't find anything that worked.  As I was searching I found a book themed one, this would be really cool if she was a few years older.  I wanted the kids to have fun and since none of them read I didn't see having all these book activities as a very fun time.  B and I keep tossing ideas around, then it hit me.  An Art party.  What kid doesn't love to color and paint.  The party is still a couple weeks away which means I'm hunting for everything.  One activity we are doing is painting.  Sounds sorta everyday, but I got canvases for all the kids and came up with this cool idea for a paint palette.

-Plastic plate  (I used some plastic plates I had extra leftover from her baptism.)
-Hot Glue
-2 oz plastic cups (Like the kind your salad dressing is sent in for take out)

Step 1:
Glue cups onto plate

Step 2:
Done  :)  See how easy that was.  I used 6 cups.

I plan on putting another cup in each holder for easy clean up and then kids can take the palettes home with them.  I am also going to write each child's name on the plate.
