Compass Classroom Premium Membership free for one month

If you are looking for a Fun, Easy, and Mess-Free Way for your kids to paint, you’ll definitely want to have them paint with Kwix Stix. My kids adore them! And, so do I because there is no mess at all.

The Fun, Easy, and Mess-Free Way to Paint with Kwix Stix, and not just for little kids. Review from I Choose Joy!

I received 3 sets of Kwix Stix to try out with five of my children and review them honestly here. I was also compensated for my time.

Kwix Stix are similar to “glue sticks,” as my 5-year-old daughter put it. They are in the same type of tube, with a removable top, and you twist them to push more paint up. They require no water or paint brushes; you simply paint directly from the tube.

The paints are tempera, but they dry in 90 seconds. Amazing! The kids’ clothes didn’t get messed up at all since the paints dried so quickly.

My older son who is 10 said they reminded him of oil pastels.

Kwix Stix are also non-toxic, which we always love in our home.

As you can see from this picture, Kwix Stix are not just for preschoolers and young elementary kids. My older daughter enjoyed them as well and created beautiful pictures with the Kwix Stix.

    I am not kiddding, but we just unearthed the free sample stick that we got at our homeschool convention today! (convention was the beginning of June!) The girls think it is great. I can see my 2.5yo really enjoying it as well.

  10. These look great and your children obviously enjoy them. I am one of those moms who would love to do lots of art with my little kids( there are 6 -10 and under) but the thought of so much mess makes my put it off. These would definately help in thay area:)

  11. These are WAY cool. Never heard of them before. Glad to know they exist and hope to get some for my kiddos soon. They would definitely enjoy them! Thanks!

  21. I have two very creative kiddos that would love these!

  22. What a cool way to paint! We don’t paint in our homeschool as much as I’d like- and the ONLY reason for that is the potential of mess and disaster in our little house. Something like this would enable us to explore painting a lot more often.
