I was contacted recently by the Pencil Grip Inc. to try out their brand new product, Thin Stix. I have used their Kwik Stix before and loved them. I was excited to try out the new arrival. We have had so much inside recess lately so I thought using the Thin Stix would be a fun new activity. My students were so excited to paint and I was excited about no having the usual painting mess.
The Kwik Stix are great for heavier coverage and making larger shapes. Best of all, the students can paint thick lines or use heavy coverage and the paint dries almost instantly. No mess at all. They were immediately able to put the papers in their mailbox to take home for the day.
I love not having to get out drying racks or lay papers all over the room. Also, we just used scrap computer paper and the paint does not soak through the page.
Best of all, I am giving away one pack of 12 Thin Stix to a lucky blog follower. Leave a comment below with your email address and I'll pick a winner on Sunday evening. (Giveaway open to US residents only.)
