This post is brought to you by Kwik Stix. All opinions are our own.
We all want to encourage our kids to be creative as often as possible. At home, at grandmas, and even on the go in the car. We want them to explore every opportunity to capture the world through their own unique lens and bring it to life on paper. After all, there’s nothing more precious than a child’s work of art. Unfortunately, children’s creations can get very messy! With Kwik Stix, we can let our kids create as much as they want and not worry quite so much about the mess. Wondering where you can find them? You can find Kwik Stix products on Target.com.
All the Fun Without the Mess with Kwik Stix
Kwik Stix are vivid, fun tempera paint sticks that dry in just 90 seconds. You don’t need paint brushes, cups of water or even smocks! Just hand them to your child to uncap, twist and paint away until their heart’s content. They work on all sorts of art surfaces too, from paper and poster board to wood and canvas! You can even uses them to repurpose cardboard boxes with brilliant works of art!
Here’s the really fun part: because the Kwik Stix are so portable, your kids can take their creativity anywhere. Start a work of art at home, then continue it in the car and finish it at grandma’s house. Plus, since the paint is contained in the stick and comes out through the dauber-like tip, there’s no mess. No worries about nasty chemicals, either. They’re AP certified meaning they are totally non-toxic. They are available in Target Retail Stores.
Kwik Stix come in a bunch of fantastic packages. My favorite is the 24 Piece Master Art set. It has 12 assorted, 6 metallic, and 6 neon colors. Pretty much everything your little one needs to paint brilliant, vivid masterpieces. You could even snag them when your kids are at school and unleash your own inner child!
Keep the Creativity Going AND Work on Pencil Grip Skills
The Makers of Kwik Stix have another fantastic product that I want to tell you about. These are especially important to me because of my son’s difficulty with handwriting. They’re called Pencil Grips, and they’re the #1 family of grips recommended to help improve your child’s (and your) handwriting.
My son, Jake, always had difficulty with his handwriting. His teachers recommended Pencil Grips when he was in 2nd grade, and he used them right up until 5th grade. They come in fun colors, so Jake actually liked using them. The 3-Step Training Kit is a great place to start. It includes the Crossover, Pinch, and Original grips. Each grip provides you with support and structure to guide you to the correct pencil grip. Even as an adult, they help reduce stress on your hands. I have carpal tunnel, so I absolutely appreciate that!
