The Kwik Stix, available at Target stores and Target.com, are solid tempera paint sticks that dry in 90 seconds. They are AP certified, meaning they are non-toxic and safe for young children. They work on paper, wood, canvas, cardboard, and many other crafting mediums.
Alaina received her first box of 12 colors not too long ago and she now has the brand new Kwik Stix Solid Tempera Paint Neons 6 pack and the Kwik Stix Solid Tempera Paint Metalix 6 pack. She loves them!! She loves having so many colors to choose from and she can paint any where without having to get out brushes & water.
Alaina wanted to see all of the different colors in one place, so she made herself a color chart. She keeps this chart in her drawer with all of her Kwik Stix.
Alaina loves to make birthday cards. As soon as she received the Metalix Kwik Stix she had an idea for a birthday card for her uncle. She made him a toolbox and inside she added a drill, hammer, screwdriver, and screws. She drew all of her pieces, painted them with her tempera sticks, and cut them out. She was so excited that she could get the silver parts to look like metal with her metallic paint sticks. Our pictures make them look gray, but looking at them they look metallic. She wrote her birthday greeting and we signed the back of the drill. All of her pieces fit inside her toolbox.
Another card she is working on she used the Kwik Stix Neons. She decided she wanted to use all of the colors, so she made a neon rainbow snail. She hasn't finished the inside of the card & I don't even know who she wants to send it too. If you are the lucky one to get it you'll know it was painted with the tempera paint sticks.
For her other uncle's birthday she made him a little dog that pulls out of a heart pocket. She used a variety of her Kwik Stix for this card.
The Kwik Stix Solid Tempera Paint sticks will make a perfect gift for any child. My artistic kid loves them because there is no mess involved, my non-artistic kid loves them because she can paint hassle free when I make her. They are on my list for gift giving this holiday season and they would make a great addition to yours.
