Sounds like a dream, right? Well, we recently stumbled across Kwik Stix and it is all those things and more! Now, if your little ones are paint lovers like ours are, you know how much table or counter space is required to hold all those beautiful and very wet pieces of art.

Needless to say, we were pretty excited to discover that Kwik Stix really does dry in about 90 seconds and does not rub off at all. Read on to see for yourself how fantastic Kwik Stix really are.

We literally took a few sheets of paper out, handed one to each child, and placed several Kwik Stix on the table. I then mentioned to the children that this time we were going to create abstract art with the paint sticks.

I explained to them that abstract art is not like drawing something recognizable, such as an animal or a person, where you would strive to make the art look similar to how it appears in real life. In contrast, abstract art is, in many ways, the exact opposite, and is created through varying colors, shapes, and form. It can look however the artist would like it to look. The artist does not need to strive to copy something but rather, create their own original and unique work of art.

Once I had explained the objective of the art lesson with my little artists, they were ready to get to work. I decided to jump in on the fun too I was just as excited to test out these Kwik Stix as the children were! Little Miss months-old was right by my side and eager to dig her nails into the art project too. Literally, she dug her nails into the silver paint stick and smeared it all over the top corner of my paper.

Apparently, she wanted to finger paint lol. I quickly took her to the sink to wash her hands before she decided to taste test the paint as well and was happy to discover that the paint washed right off. Okay, back to the art though! We selected one color at a time, placed it on the paper in random patterns, and then chose another color and placed it on the paper in random patterns just as we had done before.

We continued doing this until we had filled our entire sheet of paper. It will turn out beautiful no matter what! We simply left our art to set for a couple of minutes and when we returned, it was completely set and dried. I have used similar paint sticks in the past and they never seemed to truly dry, so I was very pleasantly surprised to find that Kwik Stix actually lived up to its promises.
