Making Crafts Mess Free with Kwix Stix Solid Tempra Paint
That moment that my son’s therapist suggested that we start having him paint I could see into the future of red stained carpets and never wearing anything white again. Yes I wanted him to work on his fine motor skills but couldn’t that be done without paper towels and giving the least amount of paint I could.
Special needs parents understand the importance of having your child get creative but the frustration that comes when it is difficult for them to hold the paintbrush. Of course all parents know that worry that comes with paint and spills all over your floor, clothes, you name it.
These solid tempera paints dry within 90 seconds which is an improvement from all the paints we have been using. Not only does it dry fast but you can use it on so many surfaces, poster board, wood, cardboard and more. It’s pumpkin time and these are a perfect tool to use on them for your kids to paint!
The case that they come is snaps up perfectly to take on the go and the lids snap on tight so you don’t have to worry about them marking up a bag if you carry them loosely. Kyler still found it easy to be able to take the cap off as well, it’s a great work on gross motor skills.
Now for safety you will be pleased that these are AP Certified right along side other names you may know such as Crayola and Elmer’s. What does that mean? Well these were tested and found to be non-toxic so they are completely 100% safe!
You can purchase Kwix Stix at Target , my favorite is the 24 pack with includes 12 classic colors, 6 neon and 6 metallics. There is a pack for the classroom as well which has 96 Kwix Stix inside. Go ahead and wrap them up for a gift or use them as a stocking stuffer.
We all know that we can’t have craft time with a young child without them taking that step to see if it’s edible. While these aren’t a great snack you can be worry free that your child is ingesting a toxic chemical. Forget the water and paint and unsnap some fun with Kwix Stix!
