Simply Spray Project Paint Puppet Theater & Giveaway

A few weeks ago I was asked to review a pretty awesome product and I'm excited to share it with you today! Simply Spray Project Paint is a non-toxic, aerosol paint that is safe to use on all kinds of crafts projects, including kid projects! Although it's safe for kiddos, the company does recommend the product for kids 8 years old and up. 

I wasn't sure what we were going to make with our paint, but then I saw these AMAZING puppet theaters from Teach Preschool and my mind was set on making one for the kids. The Farmer had several display boards from student presentations so I grabbed one and got to work!


I received 3 bottles of Simply Spray paint in red, blue and purple. Although the paint is safe to use indoors, it does spray out and I recommend doing large projects outside. We took ours outside and started spray painting. In hindsight, I thought one bottle would go a bit farther so I ended up using all 3 bottles on the theater. It sprays out evenly and covered the cardboard really well. I left it outside for about an hour to fully dry. 

I had a bit of trouble with one of the bottles and although I followed the instructions for a stuck nozzle I wasn't able to make it start working again. I ended up putting the nozzle of one of the empty cans on the nozzle I was working with and got it started again.

The colors are super vibrant, which I love and while I love our puppet theater, I really wish I'd made a t-shirt, too! Simply Spray Project Paint is simple to use, safe for the environment and comes off easily from your hands with soap and water. 

Once it was finished I cut out the stage with a box cutter, used a glue gun for the curtain and rounded up our puppets. I also made a few new ones! 

Simply Spray Project Paint works on fabric, wood, cardboard, poster board and foam pieces. Sold exclusively at Wal-Mart, Simply Spray Project Paint comes in 8 colors: black, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and white.
