Dec 242012


Like most children my kids absolutely love craft activities, they can’t get enough of drawing, glueing, cutting, stamping, playdough and of course, painting. I am quite the creative person myself so I never mind getting out all the goods and sitting down with them at the kitchen table but, I’ll be very honest here, I always secretly hope they won’t ask for painting. Painting is always messy and then there is the cleaning up afterwards!

Flexapots Paint PotsAustralian dad Rob experienced the same so he decided to create a product that would make craft time easier and more enjoyable for parents/teachers, meet Flexapots. Flexapots takes the hassle out of cleaning up with a cleverly designed range of flexible paint pots, activity mats and artist palettes. Just let the paint dry first, flex the silicone pot/mat/palette and peel off the dry paint, easy! With Flexapots you can just pop all the tools aside and clean them when it suits you, without any mess.

The cool Flexapots products can be used for all types of paint and most art and craft glues and although perfect for use at home they would also be super handy at schools and playgroups. For those kids who want to do more than just paint with primary colours from the paint pots the artist palette ($14.95) is a real musthave, it is ideal for mixing different colours and thanks to the raised edges paint is more likely to stay put on the palette.

Flexapots in action

Flexapots Artist ComboYou can buy the Flexapots paint pots, artist palettes and activity mats individually but there are also some great combo packs ($29.95) available which would make fantastic gifts. With the kids home for school holidays there will be lots of time for craft, so save yourself the hassle of cleaning up and use Flexapots. The twins are so pleased they are now allowed to paint at home more often and they think the artist palette is so cool, it looks like Flexapots is keeping us all happy.

  7. My daughter likes all art and craft activities. She is very creative and even makes things out of paper plates, toilet rolls or small empty boxes (taken out of the recycle bin). I must admit I haven’t really let her do painting at home… mainly because of the MESS it would cause. A Flexipot set would be fantastic to win. Thanks for the opportunity.
