Mia Canvas is a company that creates touchable art for your kids. The interactive paintings are brightly colored canvases that are also magnetic.

Mia Canvas is giving away one Magnetic Interactive Painting ($59.95 retail) to a dkMommy Spot reader! Here’s your chance to give artwork to your child that can actually be touched!
