Krystabelle absolutely loves arts and crafts, it’s one of her favourite go to activities at home or even at nursery. She definitely doesn’t get her creativeness from me as I am hopeless when it comes to crafts, but her Dad on the other hand has always been good with art. She must take after him.
Since we decorated our living last year, I have always been wary of letting her paint as I’m scared of her splashing paint over the walls or onto the carpet, although a multicoloured carpet does sound quite funky.
Only a couple of days ago we were kindly gifted some Little Brian Paint Sticks to review. Krystabelle was very excited opening her package. We received a pack of 12 metallic paint sticks, pack of 12 mini paint sticks and a pack of 20 chalk sticks which are in their new range.
Both Krystabelle and Teddy had lots of fun testing out the mini paint sticks, it is advisable that they are not suitable for children under 36 months due to small parts, but I kept a very close eye on Teddy the whole time to ensure he didn’t get hold of the lids.
The paint sticks are water soluble and very child friendly. There’s no need for any water or paintbrushes, you simply lift the lid, twist up the paint and then you’re ready to create your colourful masterpiece. Think of them as lipsticks except they’re paint. How fab?
The paint sticks are very versatile, mess free and the paint dries within minutes. They can even be used on different types of surfaces such as wood and even on glass. And better still, the plastic is even recyclable as it’s made from polypropylene.
Krystabelle and Teddy tested them out in their art pads and the paint glided onto the paper smoothly with a silky texture. I couldn’t believe how vibrant the colours were. I was more than happy with the quality of the paints, not something you’d expect from a paint stick so they definitely exceeded my expectation.
These are definitely a great addition to any child’s craft box and we can’t wait to do some more painting and test out the metallic paint sticks and the chalks.
Here’s a photo of their finished masterpieces.
