Paints for the Apple Container:

Acrylic paints work best for this project, though you can use tempra (poster) paints.  Acrylic paint doesn't come out of clothes.  If you get it on something, wash IMMEDIATELY (before it dries)

When the girls were younger, I'd basecoat a bunch of pots with white acrylic paint (and sometimes even leftover gray fence paint *grin*) and then let them paint over top of that with poster paints.  The terra cotta color is tough to cover with poster paints.  By basecoating white, it makes the process go better for them.
