Guess what?? Kwik Stix, our family’s favorite tempera paint sticks, are now available at Toys “R” Us! And the lovely folks at The Pencil Grip, Inc. are providing a set of Kwik Stix for one giveaway winner here at the FINCHNWREN blog!
What are Kwik Stix?
Kwik Stix are wonderful solid tempera paint sticks that are perfect for children (ages 3 and up), families, and adults who love to create beautiful art! They work like glue sticks, in that they’re encased in a plastic container with a cap. To use, you simply remove the cap, roll the paint stick up, and you’re ready to color. There is virtually no scent (like you’d find with most tempera paints), and you get the rich texture and color of liquid paint without the mess. All you need are Kwik Stix and whatever medium you’d like to draw on, which could be anything from paper (of all kinds), canvas, wood, and more!
Kwik Stix come in two size types, the Kwik Stix Classic and Kwik Stix Thin Stix. The Classic version sticks are 3 1/2″ long, with a chubby paint stick width of almost 3/4″. This width is perfect for little hands, but also is great for coloring large areas quickly and easily. The Kwik Stix Thin Stix are longer and thinner than the Classic ones, measuring in length at 5 1/2″ with a paint tip of 1/2″ wide. These are wonderful for coloring in small areas, without getting outside the lines. Personally, our family loves working with both types at once!
And what about colors? There are so many to choose from, such as:
- Kwik Stix Classics and Thin Stix come in 6-packs or 24-packs
- Both the Thin Stix and Classics come in white, yellow, orange, red, pink, lime green, green, light blue, blue, purple, brown, and black.
- The Kwik Stix Metalix packs include gold, silver, fuchsia, deep green, deep blue, and deep purple, all of which feature metallic or glittery accents
- The Kwik Stix Neons packs are filled with bright orange, vivid purple, lime green, light blue, yellow, and bright pink…in brilliant neon hues.
How we’ve used Kwik Stix
We have loved allowing our imaginations to run wild with our Kwik Stix, not only in the surface we’ve drawn on but in the art movements we were studying in our art lessons. Here are some ways we used them as we learned about Vincent van Gogh, Pop Art, and still life paintings:
We also love using them for creating art in our art journals. They’re also wonderful for Bible journaling!
