Awesome Art Supplies & Contest
Thin Stix Review



The Pencil Grip Thin Stix 12 pack of Super Quick Drying Solid Tempera Paints


After receiving these little cuties, I decided to create a fun Spring door display. Here is what I did using the Thin Stixs.

I also wanted my daughter to have some fun so I asked her to make me a sample Easter egg project so I can use it as an example in my classroom in the next few weeks. Here is what she made and WOW!, these Thin Stixs were awesome for adding little details. Did I mention how fast the paint dries too? Well, it dries in less than 90 seconds.




I even had her write her name to see if these Thin Stixs would work better than the fatter ones. I was right, her name turned out great!


Here is the final project. It took her around 5 min. to complete this authentic student-created Easter eggs. I want to thank Thin Stix's for allowing us the chance to play with this great new product.

Technology Tidbit
I have been using Quizzizz in my classroom to test comprehension. If you have not used it before it is very fun and engaging for students. The best part is the test is automatically graded for you so you get instant results as well as the student. Here are some pictures of my students using this cool testing game-based learning tool. If you are interested, check out this link to their website:


The kids laugh at the silly memes that come with it too.
The memes are customizable or if you don't have time, they have some preset that you can use.
