Thanks to Kwik Stix for providing mess-free paints for our review. All opinions are our own.
So, it’s about that time, right? Our yearly gift guide picks! This year, we’re all about the non-toy gifts. What does that mean, exactly? There’s nothing wrong with toys, of course, but they do tend to get boring and pile up, only to get donated later. So, we’re leaning toward gifts that foster learning, creating, reading, and building. Anything that inspires imagination is welcome under our tree! Craft supplies always end up at the top of our must-buy list, mainly because they keep kids busy, intrigued and inspired, without worry about batteries or even worse, getting broken. (Plus, the kids use them up, so they don’t pile up!)
But where there’s art, there’s the problem of mess, right? Not always…
Mess-free Paints for Kids
The artsy star of our craft gift list comes in the form of a mess-free paint for kids: Kwik Stix, solid tempera paint sticks that dry in 90 seconds. No water needed, no cups, no brushes, no spilling. You really won’t even need smocks. Easy, right? But even though the mess is limited, there’s no limit to the possibilities with Kwik Stix. They work on paper, wood, canvas, cardboard, and tons of other surfaces, so the creativity can keep on flowing.
…and look at those colors!
Another reason we’re loving Kwik Stix: each paint stick is AP certified, meaning they are non-toxic, so you can put aside worries about both safety and messes.
