All you'll need is a ladder, two old cardboard boxes, and some tape.

Open the ladder, and then tape a cardboard box to each side of the ladder. Add Children and paint and have some fun!!

Don't forget to put on strong sunblock.

Cleanup is a snap.

    Also doesn't add to the 'kid clutter' which is everywhere. Who needs one more plastic item to trip over when not in use?
