No Mess Art
{a review of Thin Stix}

The Holidays are the perfect time to get out the old art supplies and have some fun. The problem is… ALL THAT MESS! Keeping the kiddos busy and entertained without all the mess sounds delightful, right? Well, I have some excellent news for you… IT CAN HAPPEN! We received the Thin Stix Creativity Pack created by The Pencil Grip, Inc. for review and WE LOVE THEM. Virtually no mess art!

Holiday crafting here we come!

We have reviewed for The Pencil Grip, Inc many times and get just as excited each time as we did the first. We brainstorm what we can make next! We’ve painted all sorts of materials with Kwik Stix and they do amazing on all of them. We’ve painted on paper, wood, balloons, canvas, flower pots, cardboard, just to name a few. The Kwik Stix and Thin Stix never disappoint!

What are Thin Stix?

Picture a glue stick. Instead of glue, the twistable tube is filled with fast drying tempera paint. It’s noted on the package that they dry in 90 seconds. We have found that they generally dry quicker than that. This is just one reason they are perfect for *no mess art* projects.

Here’s a quick run down of what makes them so amazing!

○Twistable Solid Tempera Paint Sticks
○Dry in 90 Seconds ~ or less!
○No Water Needed
○Washable
○Available in Vibrant Colors {lots and lots colors}
○Nut, Egg, and Gluten Free
○Pretty Much Mess Free!

How we used them this time.

With the Holidays quickly approaching, we thought it would be fun to make something for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Our family loves to do crafts, but they seem to be especially fun during the Holiday months. I’m going to be completely transparent with you here….. I love to watch my kids use their creativity, but sometimes that can turn into resentment (on mom’s behalf) towards crafting.. hahaha!
After all the excitement of creating their masterpieces (which sometimes take a few hours) they don’t feel like cleaning up their messes. This is where the battle of mom verses kids come in! {wink.. wink}

This year I decided to let the kids make the place settings for our Thanksgiving dinner. They are making turkey place settings with each families name on them.

We made these ahead of time for this review, but I was thinking this would be the perfect no mess craft for the kids to make on Thanksgiving day while they are patiently awaiting for family and friends to arrive. This would be a great craft for all the kids to gather around and make together on Thanksgiving, too. An effective way to keep them out of the kitchen.

We also made Christmas Cards to give to family and friends. We’ve created cards in the past with regular tempera paint and they anxiously wait for the paint to dry to continue with the next step. In the past, this has lost their attention and enthusiasm for card making.

The fact that Kwik Stix dry so fast make it much easier for the kids to create multiple cards at once.
