Marsha,
I make my own sets for the kids. One year (when I didn't know better)
I bought Crayola watercolors, in the refill strips. I saved the strips,
which are plastic with little oval cells, out of which you can pop the
empty watercolor refill. It just so happens that the Prang oval fits
into the Crayola oval cell. Each strip has three cells. I put red,
orange, yellow in one strip and violet, blue, green in another. I also
have white and black in their own strip with nothing (or brown
sometimes) in the middle cell. Then I place these strips in a flat coke
box along with paper towels for blotting, a water cup or two, brushes
and one box goes on each table. This works great and if the paints get
too wet or the water cup spills over, it is contained in the box (many
art pieces have been saved from drowning thanks to the boxes).
