Mess Free Creativity with the new Thin Stix Classic Colors from The Pencil Grip, Inc. ~ a TOS review


I am always looking for new and fun ways to keep my littles busy while I am teaching the older girls or while we are out and about. One thing McKenzie (7 years-old) and Micah (3 years-old) like to do is paint. While I don’t mind pulling out the bottles of tempera paints or watercolors it’s always nice to have a quick mess free option too. We get just that when we utilize the Thin Stix 6pk of Classic Colors from The Pencil Grip, Inc. 



Thin Stix just like the original Kwik Stix’s are solid, non-toxic tempera paint sticks that require no water or paint brushes to use. Thin Stix have a smaller tips for a smoother control or for more detailed painting.

Would you believe me 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? That’s exactly what you get with the Thin Stix! They are sized just right for small hands and used just like a fat crayon or marker. The creativity possibilities are endless as kids simply draw or color with them.


With a 90 second drying time and non-toxic formula, you can’t go wrong with these! The vibrant 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.




McKenzie received these in her Easter basket this year. It was so hard for me to wait until Easter to give them to her because I knew she would love them so much! Easter morning, I found her painting in her Easter dress before church! Thankfully she did not get any paint on her dress. Later that evening I found her painting happily dozens of pictures with her new Kwik Stix Thin Stixs!




Now, don't get me wrong. I do still let him paint and get messy with regular paint, but that is few and far in between these days since we have been introduced to Kwik Stix.


 I also, really like that these are so portable. We have taken them to gymnastics and softball games near and far and they keep everyone busy and entertained on long meet days. I store the Thin Stixs and the original Kwik Stixs in pencil cases along with plenty of sketch paper for easy portability in our travel tote.


Can I tell you we love these paint sticks! Someone in the house is using them on a daily basis. They are extremely affordable at just $8.49 a set so. They are so much fun and I have no problem letting Micah or McKenzie pull out the paints and start creating! I am so excited the company decided to include the neon and metallic colors in the Thin Stix version too!


And guess what!? You can get your very own set of Kwik Stix paints by visiting Toys R Us!
