The paint didn't need much time to dry at all and the children were able to use a glue stick to fix sequins onto their crowns almost immediately. Perfect for impatient little crafters! Then I stapled the card together and they wore their crowns right away.
Best of all for me, there was hardly any mess. Certainly far less mess than when we get their usual paints and brushes out. There were no pots or brushes to wash up either. I simply wiped their hands and the table with a baby wipe and off they went to play Kings and Queens.
I wasn't provided with any information regarding the RRP from Bigjigs but after a quick search, I found that a pack of 6 Playcolor Basic Poster Paint Sticks are currently £5.99 from Amazon. Or a pack of 12 for £10.99. The metallic version are more expensive but still good value and would be great for special projects. Overall I was incredibly impressed by this product.
