Kwik Stix Creativity Pack review {includes neon and metalix colors!}

I teach two 2nd grade literature classes at co-op this year, and when I realized this age group does not have an art class this year, I decided I would try to incorporate a few art projects here and there.  One of the easiest ways to do this was to take my Kwik Stix in for them, because the 90-second drying time meant their paintings would be dry by the end of class and they could take them home the same day!  None of the children were familiar with Kwik Stix, but they seemed to enjoy trying something new, because the simplicity of uncap, twist and paint was intriguing to them.  That being said, I noticed after the two groups were finished, I would finally need to start replacing my beloved Kwik Stix (after nearly two years of adding to our collection) for our regular home use.   Enter The Pencil Grip Inc. and the opportunity to review their Thin Stix Creativity Pack.  I was able to restock my supply just in time, and my 4 year old was thrilled to see the large package of her beloved Kwik Stix!

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!
