    Get down to somewhere like hobby craft stock up on paint glue glitter and anything else they can make a mess with 🙂

    Shes got loads of water based paints for indoor messing about but I’m after something that will last outdoors. I take it the waterbased stuff will just run after a good downpour?

    I’m looking for some kids paint that can be used outdoors. My plan is to cut out some wooden shapes like flowers and those pesky Moshimonsters so my daughter can paint them and then screwed onto a trellis.

    Does anyone know of what sort of paint to use that’s kid friendly and comes in little pots?

    There must be something out there, what do nursery’s use?

    Varnish over the paint?

    Is that something that can be done then?

    unless you live in a very leafy area try Wilkinsons for kids paint – not sure on the varnish – will probably last long enough without

    edit could mix pva in the paint you’ve got – let dry before putting out take pics for scrap books kids are less precious than us grown ups about their art works

    Left over emulsion worked well on our treehouse and lasted about 15 years or just use grown up paint and supervise accordingly?

    If you undercoat in white you get a good colour on top. We use this for our festivals where we make large shapes and just let the kids go mental. Pirate ship/house/castle.

    Ask on freecycle for left over paint.

    Buy a bunch of paint samples. The ones linked are 8 oz cans for $3 from Home Depot in the US. They’ll tint them to whatever color you want.

    Unless you let the kids drink it, latex paint is pretty safe!
