Kwik Stix Deal and Giveaway!

UPDATE: Congratulations to Nic, the winner of the Giveaway! You have been emailed.

The Pencil Grip company, makers of Kwik Stix, contacted me and offered to do a giveaway on my blog. Sure! I don't know an art teacher who doesn't like freebies. :)

I've been sent Kwik Stix to review before including the classic style (about the size of a glue stick), thin stix (skinnier and great for posters), neon, and metallic. My sons are always itching to get their hands on them as soon as I'm done experimenting!

My favorite age to use Kwik Stix with is early childhood- PreK-1st grade, but older students also enjoy them. Even my high schoolers are intrigued when they catch a glimpse and want to try them out. Kwik Stix are solid tempera stix that dry in about a minute and a half, or even faster in my experience. Students produce bold colorful works of art with them and there is hardly any clean up. Kwik Stix would be a great addition to a painting center, and you can also use them on styrofoam to do relief prints/mono prints.

I was just checking out Amazon Prime Day deals and saw there is a lightning deal on the original 12 pack of Kwik Stix. So, if you read this in the next 5 hours or so you can get the set for $7.84 instead of the original $9.80. If you read this too late to get the extra good deal, maybe you'll be the lucky winner of the Kwik Stix give away! You can see the other Kwik Stix options on Amazon by clicking this link.

My 6 year old could entertain himself for hours with a set of Kwik Stix! The drawing above is of the Revolutionary War, I thought the composition was really interesting.

 To enter the give away, comment below with your email address. I will randomly select a winner July 18th and pass the information on to the company. Good luck!

  27. I love these for the littles, we have created fabulous rainbows taped to the back of a punched page in a positive and negative lesson, also for warm-vs-cool landscapes. The colors are incredibly vibrant with one layer and no mess! I'm planning to use them for a tie due design on a plate that will be used in a weaving lesson- could use more!!!
