Kids Activities – Kwik Stix crafting

Following on from my Kwik Stix shout out, I was so excited about this product I went online and ordered a packet of the Metalix range and they arrived this week!

So of course we had to start testing it out and seeing what they were like and guess what they are awesome! So easy to have a creative session with the kids and no mess! Of course it doesn’t replace painting with brushes and paint but we were able to create some pretty cool pictures with our Metalix paint sticks.  I found you needed to soften them up a little so they didn’t grab the paper but once they were warmed up, they were really easy to use.

They dry super quick, yes in 90 seconds but i found you could rub in the paint a little straight after application.

We decided to do some crafting with them and inspired by the wonderful Art Bar blog, we made a brilliant paper pinwheel for our wall. We then painted it using our Kwik Stix, we think it turned out pretty awesome! What do you think?
