Mess Free Painting Craft + Fun Giveaway

mess free painting toddler craft ideas

Now that my son is a couple of months shy of TWO! (It has gone by terribly fast) 🙁 He is constantly on the move, on to the next thing. There are only a couple of hours of Peppa Pig and Egg surprise videos this mama can handle. What is it about those videos? Oh my goodness.  Anyways. I’ve been thinking of different ways to entertain him other than being glued to the iPad. Mess free painting can be a solution.

Painting can be fun but messy, but I’ve come across Kwik Stix and mess free painting is now possible.

Being that he’s 22 months, his attention span is limited and I’m not about to set up a whole elaborate play time for something he might not even try or will do for a few seconds. It needs to be practical, easy to clean and fun.

I was approached by the guys over at Kwik Stix for a review and after reading over their product. I said YES of course.  The claim is that these markers paint similarly to real paint but dry within 90 seconds. So your kiddos work of art doesn’t have to hang anywhere to dry, no glitter involved, glues, and macaroni. I gave it a try with my kiddo and he loved it as much as a kid his age can. But mostly I loved it. Mess free painting? YASSS!

Don’t get me wrong I still need to supervise the kid or else he’ll draw on my walls and furniture and that ruins all the fun. But this is definitely something you can sit your kiddo down for, give them ample space to work if they are young like my little one.

FEATURES: 

  • Ease of use – similar to markers/glue stick containers
  • Glides on paper with little effort – great for little hands that lack dexterity
  • Colors are nice and bright 
  • Dry time is exactly as advertised  – 90 Seconds
  • Mess free painting
  • Works on paper, canvas, posters, and even wood – so be careful with your furniture as with anything that a child can draw with. 

The pack I received had 12 colors, which you can find here. There are also different options available, a 6 pack & 96 pack; these would be great for a classroom. If you know a teacher going crazy with the mess the kiddos make, these would be a great Christmas gift.  
 
To find more info on their company by visiting their webpage, Facebook page and amazon product page to make a purchase. I highly recommend these Kwik Stix. You can also check out some of their other products. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a chance to win one of your Kwik Stix.

Thanks for stopping in and good luck!

Fun Fall Festival!

Hi and Welcome…

Happy Monday everyone! Are you ready to tackle on the week? I’m working on my to-do list today. I love Mondays for that reason. I even wrote a post dedicated to Mondays.

We had a lovely time at a local fall festival this Sunday.  It’s held on a family farm called Bedner’s in Boyton Beach, FL. Although we don’t really get to enjoy fall weather in south Florida we try to do “fall” things with the family.  It was a gorgeous day though, the temperature did go down a little bit (86F) I know, that is still hot but it rained in the afternoon which helped cool us down, at least for an hour or so. They have several food trucks (BBQ, Italian, Mexican and a gourmet french fry one) along with some hot dog, lemonade, sweet tea, corn, cider doughnuts, popcorn and cupcakes.

I missed out on the corn!! I thought I would get it by the time we were going to leave and they were SOLD OUT! I was so bummed, I’m a corn fanatic and wanted to save the best for last. Oh well! Next time.

They also have hay rides, bounce houses, pony rides and a CAMEL too. If you live around the area or will be visiting south Florida during the fall/winter time, I highly recommend you go. They’ll be having events every weekend.

Here are some photos from our little outing::

Does your hometown have fun fall activities? What is your favorite thing to do with your family? Let me know in the comments below!

Thanks for reading.
