Firstly, choose your painting material then add your choice of paints or pens.  Both work very well together.  Its really up to your budget how much choice you give the children.  You will need paint brushes and palettes.  Sponge dabbers are a great option as they are easy to use, fun, give a different textured look and also good coverage.  Plastic table cover for protection is always a good idea as well as aprons to keep the kids clothes clean as possible.

Fabric pen sets come in 12 assorted colours, will last well and are easy to share amongst the kids.  If using fabric paints we would recommend planning one bottle per child as a minimum and then decant into palettes and share.

Decorations – its entirely up to you if you want to add some fun decorative bits and bobs.  Kids love them, all shiny and colourful. Our fabric glue goes a long way so just buy one and decant into smaller pots, use cotton buds to dip.  All the decorations fix well with fabric glue and once left to dry fully will last well through washes.

An instruction and ideas information sheet is provided with all fabric painting orders.

Lastly, above all make it fun!
