Welcome to our community Studio! 

 

My name is Christine and I work in the paint department at The Home Depot. This sounds like such a fun project! 

 

Before the kids can paint them, you will want to prime the pins with a primer specifically for plastic. Rust-Oleum makes one that comes in a spray can. 

 

Rust-Oleum Plastic Primer

 

After the primer has dried, your kids can paint to their hearts content. 

 

Good Luck with everything! If you are able, please come back and post pictures of how the kids decorated the pins. I would love to see some of that masterpieces that come out of this project.
