{Review} Kwik Stix

untitled

 

When most mom’s hear the question, “Mom, can I paint?” they cringe at the thought of the paint and the mess that comes along with it.  The water that gets spilled.  The paint that gets all over not just the kids but random places around the house.  Then either grudgingly they say yes and pray that the paint stays in one place or they say no, not at this time and have disappointed kids.  Let me introduce you to Kwik Stix from The Pencil Grip, Inc.  Kwik Stix, the paint that you will not hesitate to say yes to!

My family was first introduced to Kwik Stix earlier this year when we had the opportunity to review the product as a part of the Homeschool Review Crew.  The Pencil Grip, Inc. contacted me recently to see if we would be interested in reviewing their Neon & Metalix sets.  We said yes!  My kids love them and so do I!

I was once that mom that I mentioned above.  I cringed at the thought of painting, especially with 5 young children and Kwik Stix changed that!  I find myself now saying yes nearly every time they ask to paint and the two youngest (4 & 3) love to paint with Kwik Stix.

Kwik Stix are solid tempera paint in stick form about the size of a standard glue stick and are perfect for little hands.  You uncap, twist, & paint.  No water is needed so no mess when the cup is accidentally tipped over.  You don’t have to worry about the colors mixing because they do not bleed!  The best thing about Kwik Stix is that the paint dries in 90 seconds!  Yes, 90 seconds!  Kwik Stix are also great for classrooms and co-ops (96 ct & 144 ct sets are available!).  Clean up is a breeze!  Other than putting things away and making sure the caps are on tight so the Kwik Stix don’t dry out, clean up is minimal.

The colors in the Neon set are nice and bright & I love the glittery shimmer of the colors in the Metalix set.  Both sets are a great addition to the classic set we reviewed earlier in the year.

With Christmas quickly approaching Kwik Stix by The Pencil Grip makes an awesome stocking stuffer or gift.  They also make excellent gifts throughout the entire year!  You can find them in variety of colors and sets.  They can be found on Amazon (Metalix – Set of 6
Neon – 6 Pack, Classic – 6 Pack, Classic – 12 Pack, 24 ct Classic, Neon, and Metalix Combo set, 96 Pack, and 144 ct Classic – 12 of Each Classic Color) & at Target (online & in stores).

My older girls recently painted pictures of the characters from the movie ‘Inside Out’ (Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust, and Anger).

Lil’ Bit made a crown.  Since the paint is dry in 90 seconds she was able to wear the crown almost instantly!!
