Kwik Stix are her favorite art supply, but this package was even more exciting to us because it contains colors we had not used before. The Creativity Pack includes 12 traditional colors, 6 neon colors and 6 metalix colors. Needless to say, my daughter was thrilled, and she couldn't wait to try them out.
The first thing she did that morning (yes, ignore the bedhead and pajamas please!) was paint a picture of a mermaid so she could try out that new purple. Her mermaid is resting on a rock and drinking tea, because she had to make a sparkly rock! We have used and loved Kwik Stix for a couple of years now, and the traditional colors have always been vivid and bold, but now we have the bright neon colors and the sparkly metalix to add a fun flair to everything!
Another day, she was making a fall picture, and wanted to paint fall leaves and a pumpkin. It started out as a leaf pile with a happy pumpkin. Then she added the muddy puddles. (If you're familiar with Peppa Pig, you'll know why!) I walked away for a minute, because that's a luxury I have with these mess-free wonders, and when I came back I realized she couldn't resist those new colors! She added several balloons because "those colors are pretty and I needed them."
The Thin Stix Creativity pack is available at BJ's Wholesale for the discounted price of $19.99 (regular $24.99) and I would recommend them for kids of all ages! We have used Kwik Stix on paper, cardboard, craft sticks, craft foam, and wooden projects. The paint adheres well and remains vivid and bright months later. You can see some of our previous crafts here. I have some fun ideas for Christmas crafts and ornaments that I'll share when they're completed, but be sure to check the rest of the crew reviews to see some of the amazing projects other homeschoolers have been creating!
