What our experts think
This Paint Sticks Activity Kit provides lots of different designs to get children using their creative skills and developing their hand-eye coordination. As they grip the easy to hold sticks, they strengthen their important pincer-grip, needed for writing and drawing. The children enjoyed watching how the sticks glide easily over paper.
Paint Sticks were popular with parents as they found them to be easier and less messy than paint, but providing more paint-like results than crayons or pens. The two different sizes allow children to get accurate with the smaller sticks and use the larger sticks for colouring larger areas.
