Good morning everyone! I have a really fun giveaway for you today, and just in time for the holidays! I’ll be giving away a set of the fun new Kwik Stix paint pens by The Pencil Grip!
I’m sure you’ve seen these popping up all over the internet, I know I have! And my kids were so excited when I said that they were sending some for us to review. At first I thought they’d just be like regular crayons or maybe even markers, but they aren’t.
They’re actually paint in a stick. So they glide on really smoothly, and can be blended somewhat as well. They go on wet, but dry within about 90 seconds which is nice. And one that that I definitely appreciate is that they come out in an even amount. So you don’t have any large globs of paint like when working with paint and brushes.
We found that they work best with thicker, painting paper as opposed to regular copy paper. Since they are wet, they do act just like paint and can soak through thinner paper.
Hopefully you can see in this closeup that they dry with a rather interesting texture to them as well. They kind of remind me of a dryer acrylic painting or something like that.
The edges of our paper rolled up a little bit, but I just smoothed them out on a table edge, and they stayed great. The paint is a nice even coat, so there wasn’t any cracking or any flaking.

Kwik Stix was kind enough to send each of my kids their own set as well, which was nice. Now I don’t have any fighting over them, and everyone can make their own projects!

My granddaughters would love to use these when they visit. I’m sure they would create lots of pretty pictures.
I would draw along with my kids and Rob, from Art Hub for Kids – check him out – he draws along side his kids – great stuff!!
I would love to win these for my three kiddos. They all love to draw and paint a lot, and this looks like a great alternative to messy paint sessions. Thanks for posting about it because this is the first time I’ve seen this product!
My kids would love these. The would love to make pirates , animals, or any other fun drawings with these.
with 6 almost 7 kids in our home we are NEVER without some sort of art project, but we ARE almost ALWAYS out of some type of art supply! lol. I see endless amounts of “drawings” or paintings in the near future with these 🙂

These are so cool! We love Do-a-Dots, but as the kids get older, they get a little frustrated with their limits (size, etc.) These would be perfect for art class in our homeschool or those rainy craft days! We would use them to create our Christmas Thank You Cards.
I would create more art with my kiddos. It would be so much easier then regular paint with littles!
