If you've got little ones at home, you know they want to be hands-on at all times. This inflatable art station has a printed scene on which to paint, or a clear panel, so you can stand behind it for your kids to trace your face! Your kids will be free to paint, brush, roll, or sponge for hours of outdoor fun. For ages 3 and up.
