Mess Free Fun with Little Brian Paint Sticks and Face Paints

The best way to keep my little one occupied and engaged with anything is to always make it fun. The more creative the better. Like most families, we have been spending more time together at home and it has been so much fun and this adventure will become some of the most cherished memories we will have. But as we are coming towards the end of it all it seems to be getting harder and harder to think of creative ideas that are going to keep her occupied.

We love getting the craft box out and it has been amazing throughout this strange time, well apart from the clean up. But let's be honest most of us don't have the time or energy to go full on paint, glue sticks, sequins and glitter every single day. But that doesn't mean that we don't want to be creative.  So we are only too happy to welcome new ways to capture her interests and have as much fun as possible. 

We were so grateful to be kindly sent some really cool products from Little Brian to help keep us occupied. We first came across Little Brian Paint Sticks a few years ago, and I can honestly say they are amazing and such a great way to little one to have so much fun without all the mess. But we have recently discovered that Little Brian have added a few more products to their already impressive range and we couldn't wait to try them. Have you ever tried of Little Brian?

Little Brian Paint Sticks are a convenient, quick and easy way to involve children in painting without the mess and preparation of usual paints. Even though these paint sticks may lack the experience of using squishy liquid, they can be just as much fun with all the different ways you can unleash a little creativity. 

These paint sticks come in a great variety of beautifully vibrant colours and packages that most parents will want to have a stash at the ready for their little ones. They are water soluble and feel almost like a glue stick where you need to twist at the bottom to reveal the colour, the paint has no odour and dries really fast, so much faster than conventional paints. The sticks are really chunky in size meaning that they are perfect for little hands that want to show off their art skills, but without all the mess!!!

As well as conventional places for artwork, you can actually use these on windows! Whether your little ones take their artistic skills to windows around the house or in the car, they can get creative without getting into trouble and more importantly you can be safe in the knowledge that it will come off! But that's entirely up to you if you tell them.  

Little Brian Giant Paint Sticks

Brand new to the paint stick range is the biggest paint stick you will ever see, but this isn't just any paint stick. The Little Brian Giant Paint Stick is crammed with 30 colours from the paint stick range; 12 classic colours, 6 day glow colours and 12 metallic colours. My little girl absolutely loves this as it provides a handy places to keep and store all her paint sticks. Do you want to get your hands on one? Then don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for a giveaway over on our Insta page?

Not only does it seems pretty appealing to little ones, it will also bring hours of fun for all the family. The only thing I did find with this tub was that you had to empty out the whole tub to get the colours you wanted, so a little window or perhaps an opening on the side would make this user friendly, especially little ones. 

Little Brian Paint Sticks Bucket

For adventures on the go this Little Brian Paint Sticks Bucket is perfect. There are 20 super silky paints in strong vibrant classic, metallic and fluorescent colours in a handy bucket with a carry handle. Inside there are 12 classic colours, 6 day glow colours and 2 metallic colours that you can easily take away on travels. With a chunky feel the paint sticks are ideal for little hands, and great for use on a variety of materials – paper, wood, canvas glass windows. They also can be used for other art techniques like: stamping, overlaying, dotting and etching. As the paint dries so quickly there is literally no mess, no need for hand washing.

Little Brian Face Paints

I'm sure you can tell already, that we both LOVED these. It has been a little while since my little girl had her face painted, but she could tell straight away what they were for. The Little Brain Face Paints come in a set with 12 colours and a booklet of different designs to help get you started. We did really well as we made our way through the booklet. 

The face paints were really chunky in size so trying to get intricate detailing on the designs was really hard to do, buy we made our sticks into a pencil shape that really helped. The face paints were so easy to use and glided smoothly over the skin, and washed away without leaving any stains or irritation. 

As you can probably see we both had lots of fun with these face paints. Everyday she would want a different creation and over time my face painting skills improved. Our favourite designs were unicorn, tiger, ladybird and a bee. However I was allowed to get away with not getting my face painted, so even my daughter has a go at making me into  Dalmatian. It felt so odd on my skin and nothing compared to makeup but washed away so easily. What do you think of her design? It was such much fun, well until I had to answer the door to the postman. My daughter thought it was hilarious, while I was completely mortified.

We LOVED the Little Brian Paint Paint Sticks and Face Paints and we had some much fun without all the faffing of a clean up. These paint sticks are one of the best inventions and something that every parent needs for their little ones.
