Waterless, Mess-Free Paint: Kwik Stix {a review}

Waterless Tempera Paint {no mess art fun!}

All parents LOVE doing art and crafts with their kids, right?!  😉  Well, okay maybe not all of us … especially when you have many children doing it at once at your kitchen table!  But, I am so excited to share with you a product our family reviewed; a product that you can really say “Yes!” to when the kids ask if they can paint today.  The Pencil Grip, Inc. kindly sent us a set of their Kwik Stix 12pk– a waterless tempera paint IN A STICK.

You read that right …  waterless paint, in a stick.  Can I just tell you how excited I was to receive these?  They also sent us a really nice pencil grip that both my children have enjoyed using (we will probably have to order more).

About Kwik Stix and What We Thought

We have enjoyed our Kwik Stix tremendously!  It is something my kids ask to use several times a week, and honestly … there is just no reason to say no.  There is no mess to clean up, it is something they can do while I get ready to run errands, hop in the shower, or while I prep meals and snacks.  I don’t need to get them cups of water (that spill … everywhere), aprons to wear, or paint brushes to be washed.  Of course there is a time and place for all of those things, but with Kwik Stix I don’t have to plan or be there to do a sweep-in clean up.  The kids can uncap their paints and go!

As you can imagine a waterless paint is great, but I really would like to emphasize the quality of this product!  I was not sure what to expect in way of quality and how well they would apply and actually work- These are beautiful, high quality paints!  They cover well and are fun to use.  They are really pretty colors and this 12 pack had a great variety of shades.  So far, we have enjoyed using them for every day art at the table, but the possibilities are endless!

They can be used on many different surfaces including poster board, paper, wood (think making chip board books), and cardboard.  I would love to use these to make a cardboard house for the kids- imagine how simple it would be to decorate.  They will make wonderful stocking stuffers, birthday gifts for friends, and “new baby” gifts for older siblings so mama can catch a break while keeping the other children occupied.  😉

We received the 12 pack, but they also have a 6 pack, a 96 pack, and neon colors (see all their options HERE).

I’ve added a video of my kids using the Kwik Stix so you can see how easily they go on, how quickly they dry, and you can even see that you can blend the colors!  I also want to try them in my journaling Bible, to see how they work there, I will let you know.

How would you use Kwik Stix in your home?
