View Full Version : where to find "Paint by Water"
12-27-2007, 12:51 PM
Anyone have any ideas where to find "Paint by Water" books. My DS loves to paint, and I think this would be a better "non-messy" way to let him paint. I found some on Amazon, but they are all sold out (I can order, but who knows when I will get them.) Anyone seen them in any stores?
(Since I live abroad, I can't look myself. I will ask my MIL to run out and get them to send to me).

Not paint by number, but my DS got a Buddha Board for Christmas and loves it. It comes with a paintbrush and when he uses the wet brush on the board, the board, his painted design appears. When it dries, the image disappears and he can do it all over again. http://www.buddhaboard.com/bbmain__content.html#home

Alanna and Candy - thanks for posting... I was about to spend $4.50 each at Amazon. I asked my mom to look at her local Target. She said she would and she will try CVS (it is within walking distance). I hope she finds something!!

You may also want to look into the aquadoddle products. They may be less satisfing, since they don't change color or last, but they allow kids to "paint" stamp or draw repeatedly on the same "canvas" since the picture eventually evaporates. They have more control over the picture since it is not a coloring book format but a blank page format. And again the "ink" is just water so there is little chance for mess or stains. They come in big table cloth size, magnadoodle form and I saw one that mounts on a wall. Some even come with a thomas traint that will follow the line the kid draw on the doodle. Anyway, just another option for safe and clean "painting."
I think I have seen the color by water books in CVS, but you are already looking there.

I have sometimes found them at Barnes and Noble as well in the section where they have the sticker and activity books for kids.
