Do your kids love to paint? Mine do. “Can we paint?” is a regular question resounding in our home. So, when given the opportunity to check out Kwik Stix 12 pk from The Pencil Grip, Inc. I decided it would be fun. AND IT IS!
My 2 year old LOVED, LOVED, LOVED painting with them and I loved it because i didn’t have to worry about her spilling the paint in cups or splashing it around. She just got paper, picked out some colors to start with, and painted. She really had a good time. And when she got it on her tray, it was easy to clean up.
My 6 year old son loved them too, which is surprising because he is not my artist. But he thought they were really fun to dry with. He likes tempura paint usually because of the darker colors than, say, water colors, but usually prefers to just build than paint. But he jumped in on the fun every time we got the paints out to work with.
My 11 year old daughter is very much the artist of the family – always drawing and creating. She thought the Kwik Stix were very fun and liked the colors. She liked that the were quick drying too because she doesn’t like haven’t to wait to work on a something while it’s drying.
The Kwik Stix 12 pk includes a variety of colors including black, brown, white, yellow, pink, orange, red, purple, green, blue and a couple of miscellaneous shades. The variety was good and made the kids happy with the choices. There is also a 6 pk of traditional colors available, a 6 pk of metalic colors, and a 6 pk of neon colors. My kids are already asking for more!
We also received the Single Grip pencil grip, which is a standard, beginning pencil grip that is therapist recommended to help kids hold their pencils, pens, crayons, and other writing tools in the recommended manner. The Single Grip can be used for left or right handed writers and fits most writing tools. The ergonomic design helps the user not experience hand fatigue when writing and the thumb has a “R” or “L” to lead the user to proper placement on the grip. I liked that the grip came with easy to use instructions.
We used the Single Grip with our 6 year old son and it seemed to help him hold his pencil when writing much better. He has struggled with this for some time and the grip seems to keep his hand in a good position on the pencil. He didn’t like using it at first but got used to it after a few times using it.
Overall, we were really impressed with The Pencil Grip, Inc. and their Kwik Stix 12 pk and Single Grip. We very much loved the Kwik Stix 12 pk and will likely look into getting some more colors to work with. I think this would be a great gift for just about any age as well.
