Winner of a Practical Pre-School Bronze Award 2011 (Creative Play Category)
Wheelie Painters are a set of 4 painters which children can trundle through paint or puddles. Each painter has a plastic wheel with a different pattern used to construct various designs on a multitude of surfaces, from the playground to paper. Children will love twisting and turning their painter to make fun and unique prints, so it's not only young minds that are inspired, its keeping growing bodies active at the same time!
Perfect as an individual pastime or fun group activity, Wheelie Painters can be used indoors or out and have already received our stamp of approval as an 'engaging boys' product. They can weave pathways around the setting, twisting and turning as they go. Why not take the Wheelie Painters outside and trundle them through puddles of mud, just as you would a bike, and see the patterns they make on the dry parts of the playground.
As much fun indoors, try placing a roll of old wallpaper on the floor and dip the painter in paint to make a pattern, manoevering as you go, or create a large enclosed canvas by covering an area with paper surrounded with bricks and blocks. Children in their wellies can dip the Wheelie Painter in brightly coloured paints and create their very own piece of modern art. Wheelie Painters work brilliantly using different textures, like sand and Magic Snow, children will love experimenting and trying out new and unusual materials to see if a pattern can be made.
