Kwik Stix Review and Giveaway

My daughters and I were recently blessed with the opportunity to review Kwik Stix from The Pencil Grip, Inc. This was a great blessing to our family because my three daughters absolutely love to be creative. They couldn't wait to paint with them and create their own masterpieces.  And, after creating their first masterpiece they were hooked and quite frankly so was I. We are definitely huge fans of Kwik Stix. We love them! 

What are Kwik Stix?

Kwik Stix are no mess, fast drying tempera paints that are fun for children of all ages. No smocks, no brushes, no cups, no water and best of all no mess. And, they dry in 90 seconds. No more hanging pieces of paper everywhere, waiting for them to dry and hoping they don't drip! It seriously doesn’t get any better than that.

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy they are to use. You simply upcap, twist, and paint. It's so simple and fun! Usually painting at our home consists of a ten minute set up, painting, and then the dreaded 10 minute or more cleanup. Sometimes painting can turn into a huge mess. That is no longer the case with the awesome Kwik Stix. It has never been easier for my daughters to paint. They had a blast painting and creating. They decided to create homemade Christmas cards for our family and friends.

They also created beautiful pictures on paper and wood. I was very impressed at how vibrant the colors were on all surfaces but, especially on the wood.

Final Thought

I thought Kwik Stix were a genius idea. I was blown away at the ease of use and I loved that they came in a tray in a box for easy storing. When we were finished painting, the girls were able to place them back nicely in the tray and then in the box and hand them to me to put with the other art supplies for safe keeping. 

They didn't stay put up for long, because my youngest daughter decided that she wanted to paint some more. You know what? I was totally okay with it! I knew there would be no messes and that she would be able to spend her time doing something creative and best of all something she loved to do. In the past, I think I may have cringed and possibly said not tonight, because I wouldn't have wanted to deal with the paint mess. I'm so thankful that I don't have to worry about any of that any longer. 

Also, my daughter accidentally laid her arm over where she had just painted and she was so upset thinking that she had paint all over her shirt sleeve. She didn't! I told her that they dry super fast, but I think she was a bit skeptical. She was in awe and very thankful that she didn't have to go change. 

The Pencil Grip, Inc. is giving away a 6 pack of Kwik Stix to one of my lucky readers. 

Good Luck!
