<p>Real water color paper for real art is expensive!!  For daily watercolor fun painting projects for my 3&5 year olds, we use plain white printer paper.  Works wonders and is cheap.  Yesterday I found a clearance sale at Office Depot for 11X14 manila art paper.  Also white construction paper works well.</p>

<p>I would only buy the good stuff if I was gifting some kid art to my mom or something.</p>

<p>I bought ours at Hobby Lobby.  It's <a href="http://shop.hobbylobby.com/products/multi-media-art-paper-873620/" target="_blank">this</a> stuff.  Not specifically for watercolors but it works great.</p>

<p>in Maplewood has some.</p>
<p>And Dick Blick (there is one in Roseville) has a discount card that you can get if you are a homeschooler and they send you all kinds of coupons like Joann's or Hancock's Fabrics.</p>

Oh...that may be my best bet. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"> It would be nice to be able to get local and at a good price.<br><br>
Thanks everyone for the links. I will check them all out.

I bought the canson biggie pack last time from dickblick online. But,I think they stopped making it. They sell it in a pack now, but it is still lighter blue on the cover. It is great.

I like to buy from Rainbow Resource, too. I think they are having a free shipping thing currently.
