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.
- 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.
