My kids and I worked our imaginations and came up with some fun ways you could use the Thin Stix Creativity Pack.
We came up with some fun seasonal ideas.
Halloween Painted Wood Die Cuts
My teenage daughter got some wood die cuts from the craft store and painted them in spooky and scary colors for Halloween. She applied the Thin Stix paint first and then used wet paper towel pieces to smudge and paint and blend the colors. She really liked using the metallic colors to make a shiny mirror-like finish on the largest piece.
Felt Christmas Ornaments
If you are like me, then you introduced your children to the fun that is decorating felt shapes to make ornaments for the Christmas tree when they were youngsters. I did it with my kids when they were little using glue and glitter, but it would have been wonderful had we also used Thin Stix! We tried a few cutout shapes of snowy trees and a manger and discovered that Thin Stix are wonderful for coloring and decorating felt! It takes the paint a little bit longer to dry on felt (maybe 2-3 minutes instead of 90 seconds) but the results are great! I could see doing this with toddlers and younger children for all the holidays!
Homemade Christmas Cards
We make our Christmas cards every year. It gives my children a chance to be creative and an opportunity to think about the people they are making cards for. And for the relatives and friends we send card to, it is a chance for them to receive a card handmade with love and care by a child they know.
