Default Reggio Emilia & Emergent Questions

My question is about art supplies:

My group of full-timers are 15m, 15m, 21m, and 37m. Everyone is very interested in art far I've mostly stuck to coloring and playdough.

Since my dc is in my (quite new & rather pretty) home, I am very reluctant to leave out supplies willy-nilly.

THe 3 yo has already gotten ahold of paint and painted pieces of my furniture (although paper was also available). The 15 mo's WANT to join in when I bring out pencils or crayons, but then spend most of their time (after 10 seconds of scribbling) crumpling the paper, eating the crayons, and then coloring on the table. I have to stand there every second & watch them, or I something will get ruined.

So, do I keep doing it this way for a while longer? I love the IDEA of free art, but I haven't been able to put it into practice at all.

We are not even talking about studies or anything like that yet. I am still SO working on the basics of managing behaviors most days, I can't move on.
