If you are choosing what paints to use for 3-5 year olds, you will need to consider more than just the price. Brush & Finger Paint have been formulated with young children in mind. The colours are bright, and intermixable, as well as being safe. When children are young, paint doesn't always end up where it is meant to go. Paint will end up on clothes, despite aprons. It will end up on the floor, despite drop cloths, and when you're not looking, it will end up in young children's mouths. Obviously Brush & Finger Paint are not designed to be eaten - but kids will be kids, so the formula for Kids Kolors has been built on food starch, just in case. Brush & Finger Paint are easy to clean up off children's clothes as they have been formulated so that they swell up and release when soaked in cold soapy water. In addition to 10 basic colours, there are also 5 glitter paints, ideal for creating gifts for special occasions.
