Craft your Favorite Foods on National Food Day 10/24!


Calling all foodies and crafters! Did you know that there's a special day dedicated to celebrating your favorite foods? That's right, it's National Food Day, celebrated on October 24th! And what better way to celebrate than by crafting your favorite dishes with a fun twist? Today, we're going to show you how to create some delicious and kid-friendly meals that will have your taste buds doing a happy dance. So put on your aprons, let's get cooking, and crafting!

Optional Activity: While you're cooking dinner, have your children bring out their art supplies to draw the food you are making! Not only is this a fun way for kids to feel like they are helpers, but they are also creatively expressing themselves with supplies like Kwik Stix, Magic Stix, and Wonder Stix.

Kwik Stix Tempera Paint sticks take the mess out of painting while keeping all the fun! Simply uncap, twist and paint! Kwik Stix have a fast drying formula that allows them to dry in 90 seconds while still leaving a paint-like finish! No cups, smocks, water or brushes required. Kwik Stix come in assorted vibrant colors with coverage that won't crack. Great on poster paper, cardboard, wood and canvas.

Magic Stix markers are a revolutionary new product to bring safe, creative fun to your crafts! Magic Stix are guaranteed to bring long lasting color to the page with the cap off for up to 7 days without drying out. With vibrant colors, these washable and non-toxic markers will remain fresh use after use, project after project.

Let your imagination run wild with Wonder Stix! All products in the collection work with Wonder Stix. Wonder Stix are washable, odorless, dust free and cap free! They work on wood, cardboard, whiteboards, paper, glass, windows and more.
