Who doesn't like to paint? And which kids in the world don't like to paint, more specifically?
Well, I get to review Thin Stix 6pk of Classic Colors by The Pencil Grip, Inc.. Well... actually, my kids and I get to review this!

Paint is always something fun to be able to play with and I honestly knew my kids would enjoy it no matter what, because, hey, it's paint-- but I had my doubts on how it would work. Would it be messy? Would be a greater product than what is already on the market?
Pleseantly surprised would under estimate how much I actually really like this product!
You can use it for your home school but what I find neat is that you can also use in the car for your artsy kid and as long as they are drawing on paper, it isn't going to leak anywhere else. Now, mum wants to play with these and use these-- just saying.
So totally true and funny story about this...
I got out newspaper for the kids to be able to put under. Then when they pretty much refused to do that, I told them they needed to get thicker paper because I didn't want the paint markers bleeding through.
Well, needless to say....
Wrong was I!
NO MESS! NO FUSS!
I literally was shocked that no paint from a paint marker was bleeding through the paper.
My kids drew what they wanted to, and then used the paint markers to paint their drawings.
My daughter's drawing:
" I drew a teacher because that is what I want to be when I grow up. I liked the kwick sticks because they are really quick and easy to use AND BY FAR the best product I have reviewed. They dry quickly and don't make a mess like other paints which is nice for moms. I personally really liked them. I would recommend it for kids 5+ because if a toddler were to try to eat it you know .... something bad could happen. It is a little bit hard to use so just make sure you are paying attention and guess that's it so .... BYE!
oh ................................ this...... is ...OK * walks away * "
My sons's drawing:
"A picture of a black tower with a mysterious crystal on top shooting laser beams. I wanted to have a illustration of a object in a book I'm writing. They are fun and dry fast. They have very broad tips, so when you try and paint in a small space, it can create a blob instead of a dash. I would recommend the Paint Stix to 7+ because younger kids might try and eat it or use it the wrong way. It is really easy but it is hard to paint small spaces with it. The only improvement I would add is that they should make the tip be smaller."
I can't say enough how much I love these because these really are perfect for all ages. I like reviewing this under the Homeschool Review Crew because it totally fits in AND it was nice to not have to review something that was as academic. I think the kids needed the break and, frankly, so did I!
