  • If using washable paint, it'st's easy to rinse/wipe off the pepper's head and re-paint with a different color.
  • If you aren't using all of your bell pepper for cooking, consider setting aside some slices (washed, with seeds removed) for kids to snack on as they craft. 
  • Consider pouring paint into small containers or pallets to keep colors separate.
