Mess Free Paint for Crafty Kids | Kwik Stix

My kids LOVE art projects and anything crafty. And I love that they are passionate about art, but loathe the mess that it can sometimes leave behind. I may or may not have a love/hate relationship with paint. I love the joy that it brings to my kids, but hate cleaning up after an afternoon of my kids channeling their inner Picasso. Last fall I was introduced to Kwik Stix by a friend and I’ve been hooked ever since! 
Kwik Stix Solid Tempera Paint sticks take the mess out of painting while keeping all the fun! Simply uncap, twist, and paint! Kwik Stix have a fast drying formula that allow them to dry in 90 seconds while still leaving a paint-like finish! No cups, smocks, water or brushes required. They come in assorted vibrant colors – from metallics to neon. My kids absolutely love this product and I love the ease at which it wipes up for the occasional paint that makes it’s way to my table. They work great on poster paper, wood, canvas, aluminum, windows and cardboard and are AP Certified (non-toxic). 

So you’re probably wondering how paint is in a ‘stick’ form. I wondered this myself! The paints themselves are similar to a glue stick in appearance, where you twist the cap. But they go on the paper like paint and leave a paint-like finish. And they are super easy to use – my 2 & 4 year old daughters had no problem figuring them out and making works of art within seconds of opening the package. The other thing to note is that they last quite a while! I was surprised at how long the sticks last given the amount of use from my girls. I always make sure they put the caps on when they are done, but we haven’t had any issue of them drying out. So in my book this product gets an A+ all around!
