My three year old can sit and paint for an hour and a half at Brush Fire. She loves it and so do I. It is a little pricey, but there are always coupons around for $2 or $3 off each piece, so that makes it totally worth it. We use BF for presents all the time for Grandparents and friends. Each year on my daughter's birthday we go and do a handprint plate. Soon, it will turn into her own designs, that I hope we continue to do through her teens. They've gotten more organized with their materials, and it's easier to find things.
