The Pencil Grip, Inc.: Kwik Stix ~ a review & giveaway

What if I told you there was such a thing as no mess painting? That's right, no cups, smocks, brushes, or a single drop of water needed to paint a masterpiece for your budding Picasso.



A few weeks ago I was sent a 12 piece set of Kwik Stix from The Pencil Grip, Inc. It has since changed the way we paint.

The 12 pack of  Kwik Stix contains the following colors to use:
white
yellow
orange
red
pink
lt green
green
lt blue
blue
purple
brown
black 


These 12 vibrant colors are contained in a tube roughly the size of a glue stick.  It is the perfect size to fit any hand. With a fast drying formula, the colors dry in just 90 seconds after coming in contact with your paper, cardboard, wood, or even canvas media. Just pop the cap off, twist the stick to make the paint rise up and you are ready for hours of fun painting.





We love these paint sticks! They are so much fun and I have no problem letting Micah paint at the easel by himself. I don't have to worry about him spilling, or in his case flinging paint all through the house. He loves it because it gives him some independence while I am teaching or helping one of his sisters. Sometimes it's hard to share, but we are working on that :-)


I look forward to bringing these with us during gymnastics meet season. I know these will be a helpful activity while we are on the road traveling or while at a meet. These would make great stocking stuffers too! In fact, I am ordering an extra set of the 12 pack, so we can try to alleviate too many melt downs. We are also going to be giving Mikayla's and McKenzie's secret gym sisters a set of 12 for Christmas gifts.
And guess what!? I have a set of the 6 pack to give away to my readers! Just leave me a comment below and tell me who you would give the set to. Easy Peasy! The giveaway is only open to US residents at this time and  one winner will be picked on Wednesday, December 16th at 6PM Eastern. The winner will have 24 hours to contact me with their address so that we can get your product to you in time for Christmas {I can't promise it will make it}.
