My kids love doing art projects. The messier the better. I normally don’t mind the mess too much…except right after I clean. You know what I mean… I finally got around to washing the whole floor and that is the precise moment my kids want to paint. Ugh! Luckily, I had the opportunity to review the Kwik Stix 12 Pack and fell in love with this mess-free painting option. So, I was so excited when the opportunity to review another product from Kwik Stix arose.
Thin Stix are solid tempura paint sticks that come in a wide palette of colors. The thinner body allows for a more natural grip, and the thinner paint head gives you better control for a more detailed stroke. The thin stix acts like a glue stick in that you can twist the end to allow just the right amount of paint exposed at the end.
Other great benefits include the following:
There’s no water cup to spill or paint palette for little elbows to dip in!
You don’t have to find a safe spot for your artist’s masterpiece where it take hours to dry. Thin Stix dry in 90 seconds. I found this to be true for paper. It takes a little longer for wood.
You don’t have to worry if your toddler thinks it’s a sucker. Thin Stix are completely non-toxic.
Grab ‘N Go
These Thin Stix are so portable. You can use them anywhere. I’ve used them in the library and at Panera!
Thin Stix are a great way to make normal work more fun.
We used Thin Stix to decorate a wooden jewelry box.
I had ZooKid follow a YouTube tempura painting tutorial using Thin Stix. I think the project turned out great, although we found the ability to blend colors is more difficult.
Overall, I highly recommend all products by Kwik Stix, especially for younger students.
