How to paint computer cases with middle schoolers?

I work in a middle school and as a service project, my students want to build computers and paint them in the school colors to either donate to homeless shelters in town or to keep in the trophy case here at the middle school. I don't know what it takes to paint them, though, and I could use some help!

There are two cases we're going to be working with. One is an Antec Atlas 550 Server Case
and the other is a Lenovo IBM ThinkCentre A60 8700 case
I had looked up some stuff online that talked about sanding them down. I had also seen some folks talking about just priming and painting over the primer. I don't know what this means exactly. We're limited by our budget (around 50$) and by our supplies (I don't have any means of sanding them down).
I had initially thought we could just spray paint them but I've read some things about spray paint not sticking well or peeling off. What do y'all think would be best?
