This word has the ability to send shivers down my spine. Sure, I want my kids to be creative. However, all moms know that creativity and messes seemingly go hand-in-hand.
My kids never cease to amaze me with their paint catastrophes. Paint in their hair, in between chubby little toddler fingers, and droplets of paint on the walls and floors are all regular occurrences whenever my children let their creative juices flow.
That is until I discovered Kwik Stix by The Pencil Grip.
A couple of months back at an Oklahoma City Moms Blog event, my children received Kwik Stix samples in their swag bags.
Y’all. When we got home from the event, my children painted mess free with their Kwik Stix for HOURS. It was love a first sight, and I was hooked.
I promptly went online and ordered one of the biggest sets I could get my hands on. I checked the mail everyday anticipating their arrival. When they finally arrived, my kids were thrilled. They painted and painted, however there was no mess like there was with the paints I typically purchased in the past. Daily paint sessions became the norm, because instead of avoiding art projects, I welcomed them with open arms.
You see, Kwik Stix has mastered the art of mess free creativity. What makes Kwik Stix unique is the fact that they are solid tempera paint sticks, which make them super easy for children to use. So instead of kids messily slopping paint with a paint brush onto their paper, the paint easily glides onto their masterpieces. Kwik Stix paint formula is opaque and even comes in an array of beautiful metallic colors.
Not only is the formula very child friendly, Kwik Stix are AP Certified which means they are non-toxic, and they are also egg, gluten, and peanut free.
Oh. And did I mention that they dry in 90 seconds? That’s it. 90 seconds. You can officially say “buh-bye” to the days of waiting hours for paint to dry on sopping wet papers. Masterpieces made with Kwik Stix can practically be hung on the fridge minutes after they are created.
The exciting news is that Kwik Stix can now be purchased at Toys R Us, which makes finding these products a breeze! So head on over to Toys R Us and add these amazing paints to your children’s art supply stash. You’ll be ready for hours of mess free creativity!
