Two of my boys have been playing around with a new addition to the Pencil Grip, Inc. company, which we were given for the purpose of this review. They have been creating art with this company’s new product, the Thin Stix 6pk of Classic Colors.
We had previously reviewed an earlier product from The Pencil Grip, Inc., and absolutely loved it, so when this opportunity came up, my boys really bugged me to apply for it!
When we reviewed the original Kwik Stix, my son “Mr. Loquacious” really enjoyed them, however, he had me say in the review that he wished the company would make them even thinner, so he could use them for more detail. Well, they did, and now we have Thin Stix! He is asking now though, if the company would please go even thinner, more like the thickness of a crayon. Not too demanding at all, this child of mine!
Here he is, showing what he has named “The National Flag of Kids”
Hey, the way *I* see it, at least this time around he was not hampered by a sling on his dominant arm, lol!
“The Artist”, as when we reviewed the Kwik Stix, also really likes this product. He loves drawing very much, and I love the no mess aspect of this product! Here are just a couple of the drawings that he likes the best:
The Thin Stix 6pk of Classic Colors, like their thicker brothers, the Kwik Stix, are also actual Solid Tempera Paint, inside of a marker like container. My boys simply pop off the cap, roll up the paint as you would do with a glue stick, and paint their hearts out. After that, they roll it back down and put the cap back on, being sure to get it on tightly. It truly could not be simpler in any way!
Thin Stix, exactly the same as their thicker brothers, really is paint, but the reason *I* like it is that I am just not one of those “cool” homeschooling moms who doesn’t mind messy projects. I don’t know what it is, but I am always afraid the mess will become permanent damage. Now, THIS paint is not like that at all! the pictures that “Mr. Loquacious” and “The Artist” are showing off above were painted on simple printer paper. First, the only one which had any curling was the flag that “Mr. Loquacious” made. Since the pictures that “The Artist” made are not heavy with paint, and did not cover the entire page, his did not curl at all. And they BOTH did indeed dry completely within 90 seconds, just exactly as the company claims the product will do. Gotta love that!
My kids are really enjoying this product, and I think they will continue to do so!
