Art meets glue stick. A love story.

I love watching the kids’ expressions as they realize they have created something from nothing. I spotted some cute and colorful artwork in a friend’s classroom and she showed me her collection of Kwik Stix.

Wait! What? How have I missed Kwik Stix?

I jumped onto www.thepencilgrip.com and ordered both the classic AND the metallic colors. These solid tempera paint sticks are absolutely amazing. Pure fun! And, they’re right, it dries in less than 90 seconds.

I read The Dot (Peter H. Reynolds) and we watched his video on YouTube. The kids were mesmerized and excited to create their own pictures starting simply with a dot.

Oh, the joys of creating!
