What our experts think
Our testers loved this art set and had lots of fun creating their own masterpieces. It was lovely to watch them use the different resources to build their own pictures: there were lots of opportunities for developing fine motor skills and dexterity, which helps youngsters improve their pincer grip (used for writing and drawing). The set also promotes colour recognition and colour mixing, which develops children’s knowledge and understanding and provides them with opportunities to express their creativity and imagination. It’s great that the stencils can be washed and reused again and again.
Most of the children could carry out the activity alone and needed very little adult input, although younger children did need an adult to stick the stencils in place with tape to ensure they did not move around.
