If your children are anything like my son, they love to paint. I love letting him be creative, but let's face it. Paint can get messy and it gets everywhere. No matter what we try to do to stop it, it goes all over the place. Thankfully, with these new paint sticks, that's not a problem any longer!!
These amazing products are solid tempura paint that are easily uncapped. They do not run all over the place. They go where your child puts it and that's it. There's no water to wash off the brushes making an even bigger mess. While art time is fun and being messy is fun too, you don't always want to have a huge area to clean up after your kiddos inspiration hits. With these new sticks in your arsenal of craft supplies, that's not a problem!
The paint dries within 90 seconds of your child applying it to their paper, or in this case, the craft sticks he was using to make Christmas ornaments.
The Pencil Grip
We received two pencil grips to check out. I honestly have to say my son took one right away and ran away with it. So I had to catch the one I could while I could. These are made of great quality and are nice and comfortable to hold your pencils. I am one who tends to squeeze my pencil way too tight so this has helped to keep my fingers from getting too sore. There's a wide variety of colors available to fit your kiddos personality.
pinch grip, crossover and the jumbo grip. If you're teaching your child how to write and hold their pencil correctly, there is a three step process. The first step is the crossover grip. Once they have worked with that one awhile, they move up to the pinch grip and then finally to the original grip. By learning how to hold their pencil properly, it can help prevent some of those bad writing habits that can cause your child to have painful experiences.
They also sent a chart explaining each of the grips, the three step approach, and the correct and incorrect way to hold your pencil.
You can also buy these on their website or on Amazon just as the Kwik Stix are available in both places.
I highly recommend both of these products as an addition to your homeschool, school, or regular art supply areas. They are both made of great quality, work great with your kids and are fun to use as well. Check them out and see what I mean!!
