Holiday Gift Guide: Kwik Stix & Giveaway!

 We have been long time fans of Kwik Stix - which are solid tempura paint sticks. The beauty of these gems is that they dry in 90 seconds so they are perfect for little artist. They eliminate the mess of cups, water and brushes. We have used them on a variety of projects from wood to ceramic and now even on our pumpkins! I love that I can just give them to my five year old and I really don't need to supervise at all because there is little to no mess. The only thing I do at the end is match the caps on the sticks because he doesn't clean them up - yet.


  • Dries in 90 seconds
  • No water needed

The 6 pack of the Basic and Metalix will be in stores and bigger sizes and Neon will be available at We received a package of the new Metalix to test out and they are stunning! They shine with glitter. I know these are going to be a hit because I was so drawn to the sparkle.

 Two of my children decided this year to 'paint' their pumpkins and we used Kwik Stix to do the job. I think they came out awesome!

We also received a very cool Rubber Band Ball Kit which is available online at  The Pencil Grip's store. This was a neat project that my oldest took on. He is excited to keep adding rubber bands as we find them to the ball. He also like that it bounced like promised.
