Kwik Stix and a Giveaway!
After attending the Spring Blogger Meet-up in French Lick in March, I was excited to go through all my new goodies! In the box at the very bottom, I found what has now become one of my MOST favorite new art mediums–Kwik Stix!
What are they? Kwik Stix are these amazing little glue stick type containers of tempera paint that are completely dry in 90 seconds! I LOVE the variety of colors that I got in my 12 pack. Every color my students could ever want!
After I tried them, I knew I needed to let my students explore with them and explore they did! After about 30 seconds of showing them how they worked (and how to not twist them all the way up!), my students were having a blast!
We are going on 3 weeks of daily use and still have plenty of paint left! I told ONE, just one of my students where to return the Kwik Stix to each day when they were done using them, and every single day in those 3 weeks, they have made their way back to my desk, in rainbow order! 🙂
I asked several of my students what they liked most about the Kwik Stix and they said:
“I love how its like we are painting, but you don’t have to wait for them to dry!”
“These make our art station much more fun!”
“Can we get some more??”
“I love that these paint sticks are smooth! When I’m using them, they just slide along my paper!”.
My assistant fell in love with them too and ordered a few sets for her nephew’s birthday!
You can get yours here, or you can enter my giveaway and win a set for your classroom! (Giveaway ends 4/21/16 at 12:00 pm EDT).
This giveaway is open to U.S. Residents Only! 🙂
I think you will LOVE using Kwik Stix with your students as much as I have!
