Paint without the mess? Yes please!!

I love letting my little ones create in the library, but there are just some things we don't do, because of the mess.  One of them is paint.  But then I attended the Spring Teacher Blogger Meetup last March and I found out that tempera paint can exist in a stick! You heard me right, sticks of paint.  Picture a glue stick filled with a solid paint that dries in 90 seconds. Whaaa?? I KNOW!! Truly life changing in the world of paint.
 
Kwik Stix really are like painting with a brush, but without the drip and clean up.  They are made with a fast drying formula that dries completely in 90 seconds.  Whatever you painted may still look wet after a minute and a half, but it is not! Checkout my painting skills below.
It looks wet, but it's not!
You may be thinking, "Hey, those paint sticks look like they've been on a diet..."  Well, the good people at Kwik Stix just came out with THIN STIX!  That's what I used to paint this cute heart from Melonheadz! They are similar to the size of a marker, but still as awesome as the original.  They are better for painting smaller spaces.  I could have never stayed inside the polka dots with an original Kwik Stix!  
Paint is dry after 90 seconds!
Kwik Stix and Thin Stix come in so many colors, including neon and metalix, and can be used on posterboard, cardboard, wood, canvas, and regular paper.  They are non-toxic and safe for young children.  The best part is....they are affordable!!  Check out the full selection on Amazon!
