Ok, moms! Do your kids like to create as much as mine do? We are all super excited about these new paints. Not only do my own children love them, but I keep them on hand for when we entertain and little ones are here. The Kwik Stix are genius and definitely worth knowing about.
From the time this one was little, she’s been creating. She loves anything and everything paint related. It’s safe to say that at least twice a month I get pretty steamed because she didn’t rinse out my brushes. We are working on that! But these paints don’t require brushes or a bowl of water and guess what? They dry almost instantly. Score!
RAINBOW OF COLORS
The Kwik Stix come in classic colors, metalix, and neon. The classic colors were the big hit with both of my children. I definitely plan on keeping these in my “company basket.” I’ll have to do a post on that. I keep a basket of things that can entertain younger children. That way when we have those cute little ones over to the house there are fun things for them to do. These non-toxic paints are nut, egg and gluten free.
PAINT ON ANYTHING
They work on so many different surfaces including wood, paper, canvas, windows (they’ll wash right off), aluminum, etc. My daughter’s eyes lit up when she found out they work on windows. Something tells me our car windows might be painted for the next big sporting event.
I love that we can make cards for friends and family and they will be dry immediately. They are mess free which means I even let them paint in our very white dining room. They are washable which is key. But truly they are so easy to use that I wouldn’t worry at all.
PROOF THEY ROCK
And this is the true test. Yes, I asked my daughter to snap these photos but this one was totally unposed and the very next day. I had left everything out on the dining room table and found these two painting after school. They even made a lemonade stand sign. These paints are great for any project that you want to use immediately or take to school. No drying time opens up a lot of doors!
Her tie-dye poster is still a work in progress. I think it’s pretty epic. Very thankful that Kwik Stix reached out and let us try these out. Two thumbs up from my children and from me! If you think they are something a young one in your life might want to try you can find them at Michaels. I was just thinking how a set at Grammy and Papa’s house would be pretty smart, too.
On an unrelate note, I am hoping to hear from you for an upcoming Q & A post. Check out this post for more details and leave me a question!
*Proud to partner with Kwik Stix on this post.

That is fantastic! My girls love to paint and I do not like the mess. I am going to buy these right away. Thank you so much!
I hope you love them as much as we do. They really are so much fun. My kids have been using them all week. Have a great weekend.

Going to Michaels today to get some!!!! My 7 and 10 year old will love them…and so would I!! No mess!!! Woohoo!!
Keep me posted! We LOVE them. I still haven’t put them away. Hope your kids enjoy them, too!
Yes please on a post about your company basket.
OK! I will add that to my calendar. It’s nothing crazy but could help! Have a great day.
Wow – these look awesome. My 13 year old daughter has outgrown this type thing – but I’m going to pass this along to a mom I know with two young creatives at home! Also- these would make great gifts! Thanks for sharing – Jessica , Team KIT
You’re welcome. They really are fun and any mom of young ones would appreciate. They are even good for my junior high daughter for making posters to take to school.
I hear you on the brushes! My 8yo boy loooooves to paint…but we’re working on the clean up and THROUGH rinsing of the paint brushes. 🙂
Do the paint stick smear after they are dry? If several papers are stacked together would color transfer from one page to another? Thanks for the new product review!
Hi! Great question. No, they do not smear. Once it is dry it’s dry. Yesterday the kids used them out in the fresh air and they dried almost immediately.
The brushes! So frustrating. I want to encourage creativity but every time it’s a battle. Clearly I am doing something wrong. LOL.
Oh man, I need these for my little (but very messy) artists!
And that tie dye art just brought back major childhood memories x
