Kwik Stix Give Away #2

I have another wonderful giveaway for you this week.  You can win  a 6 pack of Neon Kwik Stix AND a 6 pack of their Primary colors. Before you enter to win, check out my review of this fabulous product!
I love Kwik Stix and have reviewed them on my blog in a previous post. You can read it here.
My review is much the same as in my original post with a few new findings.

These are true tempera paints but in glue stick form. No water, no paint brushes, just the stick! This wonderful product comes to us by The Pencil Grip, Inc. I had the honor of testing these out  in my classroom with my kiddos. They are AWESOME and will definitely be on my supply “wish list” from now on.

  1. There is NO more paint tray mess. Students just remove the lid, use it like a glue stick, then put the lid back on.
  2. The colors are soooo much brighter as you can see in the pictures.
  3. There are NO more water spills because you don’t need water to activate the paint.
  4. The Stix come in a plastic tray that can help keep them from rolling around the table.
  5. The paint dries in 90 seconds.
  6. The kids LOVE them.
  7. They are super easy for Pre-K and K students to use.
The actual size of the Kwik Stix is like a glue stick.

**The only negatives I could find:
  1. The Kwik Stix are fat making it hard to get into small corners or circles in the drawings. This could easily be fixed by just rubbing the top of the Kwik Stix with a paint brush and then onto the paper. I have been told that since my last review the company has put skinny/thin tip Kwik Stix into production but there is no word when they will be available yet.
  2. You can get a 6 pack for 5.99. So to have enough for lets say 20 kiddos you would have to spend about $119.00 OR you could purchase their 96 pack for $96.00 (That seems quiet pricey to me.) - Maybe you could just purchase 4 of the 5.99 pack and switch out which teams get to use them.............
  3. They don't come in multiple skin colors. (Maybe that is something the company will add...)
I firmly believe that students should be learning how to use all different types of mediums when creating art so this will by all means not replace the watercolors and other paints in my classroom but it is definitely a fun new addition to our art tools.

You could have these in your classroom too! I have been given permission by this company to have a giveaway featuring their awesome product. The giveaway prize will include a 6 pack of their Neon Kwik Stix AND a 6 pack of their Primary colors. 
All you have to do is enter the Rafflecopter below! I just know you will love these as much as I do. Good Luck!
