Supply the kids with a painting journal. Not a cheap scrapbook but rather a nice artist journal with art quality paper. You can buy good art journals in most art supply stores. They will also need a jar for water, a range of brushes, a plate or tile for their pallette. (Cover this with cling plastic wrap and you can throw away the left overs), a painting shirt or apron, paper towel and an old towel to put underneath their work.
