Tools of the trade - SOLD

Well, actually these are the kids' paintbrushes. But I saw the jar under the sink and they looked pretty interesting. And this reminds me of one of my pet peeves: crummy paintbrushes in grade schools. I mean, really! They're wiry, plastic-y bristles with cruddy points and they don't hold paint well. How can a kid get inspired with that? (And yep - there is one of those offensive brushes on the left. I didn't buy it!) Do kids use paper protractors? Compasses made of thin bendy rubber? I think not! You need proper tools for the job. Enough said.
