~ What ~
This artwork set contains 8 washable dot markers with matching colored lids and 12 children’s drawing templates to paint using the dotting method. Each marker is 5 inches long and 1.25 inches in diameter, while the templates are 5.5 inches square. The paint colors included are yellow, orange, pink, red, green, blue, purple, and brown. The templates range from an alligator, cow, duck, elephant, giraffe, and hippo to a horse, lion, monkey, pig, rabbit, and sheep. The set arrives in a gift box with instructions, ready for using or giving.
~ Why ~
Having a degree in art, I love giving creative projects to our grandchildren, especially both 4-year-olds. The markers are thicker than normal pens so perfect for little hands to grip and hold. There are plenty of template and color options to choose from.
~ Why Not ~
Some may not like doing an arts and crafts project, but these are simple and easy to use. Others may not know the markers have to be primed in advance by pushing up and down several times on paper to get the ink to start to flow.
~ Wish ~
The box has a boat, ship, lighthouse, treasure chest, crab, compass, starfish, and other designs on it so it is misleading on what templates are in the box. It would be helpful to have the descriptions of each template posted on the outside.
~ Want ~
If your toddler to pre-schooler likes to do art projects with paint, this is a fun set.
