Thin Stix Creativity Pack (Art Supplies) {Review}

We have fast come to love anything we get our hands on from the wonderful people at The Pencil Grip, Inc. and that holds true again with our latest discovery of Thin Stix Creativity Pack. We are so blessed to receive a 24-color pack to add to our art supplies for review.

Thin Stix Creativity Pack
Today’s review post is a little bit different. I’m going to insert a short (less than five minutes) video to show you our set and some examples of art works that my girls have produced with it. The links included (above) are not affiliate links as were mentioned in my previous post, but a different store to show what all is available as requested by the wonderful vendor. Oh and while I’m on the past mentionings, don’t forget to check my review of The Pencil Grip.

Now, back to it!

Thin Stix Creativity Pack
Kwik Stix are amazing. We love our little set and to be able to add so many more colors in a 24-color pack is just thrilling. All of my kids are delighted and want to use them every day all day!

So here’s that photo I mentioned.

Amazing, right?!

While we were fine with the Classic Colors and totally appreciate that set, we feel so spoiled after exposure to the complete mess free Thin Stix Creativity Pack. We received the pack during an off school week. So the art I showed was from their ideas of getting ready for Halloween and wishful thinking of a weekend fishing trip with their Enginerd daddy.

We have mostly been using regular printer paper (as it is what is most available on hand), but my girls have also experimentied with drawing on wood and cardboard. This tempera paint holds so well to all of our choice surfaces, and yet cleans so well from our Corian countertops that I’m really not concerned even when the three-year-old gets involved in projects as well.

The additional Classic Colors are great, the bonus of Neon Colors make a great sunny grass scene, and the Metalix Colors make an awesome sparkly appearance and details for things such as a spider’s web! I just know these will make great parts of ornaments for decorating a Christmas Tree in a few weeks and the bold oranges and browns will make a great turkey too in the meantime!

I want my kids to be able to have art at their leisure, but I really dread the clean up or ruining of their surroundings with typical art supplies. We’ve gone outside in the past, but some days (baby in arms or whatever the excuse is) I just cannot manage to get us out where painting would be appropriate or the weather isn’t right. The Pencil Grip, Inc. presentation of Kwik Stix and especially the Thin Stix has been amazing to our family and has truly changed our experience with art adding in to our lessons.

It may seem silly, but this non-toxic, mess free art product of solid tempera paint has truly changed our daily look on including art and we are all in this family truly grateful. Mama needed this, and so did the kids. After all, I share, most of the time.

You’re jealous, right?

    I had never heard of Kwix Stix, but they sound awesome! My toddler wants to paint almost daily, but cleaning up the mess and keeping the paint off the carpet and out of her hair is quite a task! We’re starting a letter of the week program and I would love to use these to encourage her to paint things starting with each letter we learn. She’s also getting a baby brother in a couple months and I would love for her to be able to paint for fun without worrying about mess during times when I have to attend to the new baby. Thanks for reviewing this product! Your kids are great artists, too!!

    • Thanks for entering and stopping by to read Kimbe! It’s great having you here!! <3

  • Elizabeth Andrews

    Looks like a great gift for some toddler boys that I know!

    • Definitely recommend, they try them out! I’ll let you know if I have any future art project giveaways with them in mind. 🙂

    I remember when tempera paints always meant finger paints or the huge bottles that always seemed to get knocked over at least once. What a refreshing idea and easy way to say “yes” more often to the frequently heard, “Can we paint now?”

    • Absolutely! Sorry you didn’t win this time. But I still recommend checking them out and adding them to your supplies.
