"Last year, this company introduced Marker Maker, where kids make their own markers," says Byrne. "This year, they can make their own paint."
Kids can mix up batches of paint by using a variety of pigment strips and prepared pots. They then use a small hand-cranked mixer to blend the colors.
"Kids have the fun of custom-making a color using a recipe card, but it also lets them experience the creativity of making their own," says Byrne.
