Love painting but hate the mess? Ditch the brushes for these hand-held marker-like dispensers. Pick up, press down, and get crafty: the paint flows freely as kids apply pressure to paper. Once they lift the dispensers off the page, the paint stops flowing. Compact and easy for kids to handle, each color has a unique scent, from strawberry to sour apple, making painting a sensory experience. Easy cleanup for parents, with the kid-appeal of a scratch and sniff sticker. (Crafty Dab, $7.11)
