Poster paint, also called tempera paint, is non-toxic, easy to clean, quick-drying and available in bright colours as well as glitter.
Our Tim and Tess Scratch and Smell Washable Poster Paints provide an extra level of fun with some mouth-watering scents packed into each one. Use it on canvas, cardboard, paper and more, let it dry, then scratch the paint to reveal the scent, such as orange, grape and chocolate.
For kids who love to mix colours, check out our watercolour paint sets with paint, brush, pad and palette to get them blending and experimenting sooner.
Pick up some paint brush sets and sponge rollers to create interesting shapes and texture. Give kids something extra to stick on their projects with our range of glitter, felt, pom poms, wooden sticks, pipe cleaners and more.
Art Supplies For Toddlers
For younger kids, art is a great way to learn about colour, express emotion and develop important sensory skills. Finger painting is a great way to get them started as it's non-toxic, washable and has a slightly slippery texture which toddlers will love to smear, dot and blend.
Stock up on our finger paint and finger paint pad from Tim & Tess which come in assorted colours. Construction paper is another must-have for toddler art. It's a great surface for both paint and our Crayola crayons, as well as our Tim & Tess Washable Chunky Crayons that are easy to clean off skin and clothes.
Art Supplies For Teens and Tweens
When kids are a little older, you can introduce them to more advanced art supplies. Help them expand their painting skills with different mediums, such as watercolors, acrylic paint and oil pastels.
Stock up on stencils to give them an easy way to create interesting designs and patterns on different surfaces. We have a great range of wooden items that would make a fantastic art project for older kids. Shop our Tim & Tess woodwork range and have fun painting mini birdhouses, chairs, dinosaurs and latched boxes.
Face painting is another great art activity for teens and tweens. Take any party to the next level with our face paint and body paint that's safe for skin, washable and can be used to paint stunning designs, from tigers and dragons to their favourite TV and film characters.
