Kwik Stix Thin Stix

Has this ever happened to you?

“Mom!! I just remembered I have a Science project due tomorrow at school!!”

Of course it’s a Sunday evening and it’s going on 9:00. 🙂

This happened a few weeks ago at my house and because I’m a teacher, I always have at least one sheet of poster board and a tri-fold display board on hand. So, we grabbed a tri-fold display board and the new Kwik Stix Thin Stix and got to work. 

The thin size of the Kwik Stix Thin Stix made it SUPER easy for my son to trace over his penciled in words and made a great looking display board in under 10 minutes!! 

For those of you who don’t know the wonders of Kwik Stix Thin Stix, here are some of the reasons my students and I love using them! Kwik Stix are solid tempera paint that dries in 90 seconds!! The Thin Stix allow you to paint with finer detail with no messy paint cups or brushes to clean up after. We use them in our Art center every day and because they last for a long time, my students can always find them ready to use!

Kwik Stix are AP certified, meaning that they are non-toxic and safe for young children. We’ve used them on paper, cardstock, wood, canvas, cardboard, and lots of other places too!! I took a 12 pack of Kwik Stix Thin Stix and some balsa wood picture frames to my 8  year old niece to decorate for her mommy while she was in the hospital recently, and she had a BLAST coloring away right in the hospital room!  No water was needed, and she carefully colored the frames in one color and then layered other colors over the top to draw her scene!

We used the 12 pack of classic colors here, but Kwik Stix Thin Stix are also available in 6 packs of basic, neon, and metallic, and in a 24 pack which includes 12 assorted, 6 neon, and 6 metallic Stix. The 24 pack is a classroom favorite in my room! 

In under 20 minutes we had my sons Science project finished and ready to go with him to school the next morning–no waiting overnight for drying time either!! 

Because Kwik Stix Thin Stix come in a variety of colors, it was easy to make an eye catching display in minutes!!
