Mess Free Painting With Galt

What if I told you there was such a thing as mess-free painting for toddlers? You wouldn’t believe me. I didn’t believe that such a thing existed either until the wonderful team at Galt Toys introduced me to their Painting Sticks. Mess-free, colourful paintings galore!

Galt Painting Sticks


These amazing paint sticks come in a pack of 6 and contains yellow, orange, red, green, blue and purple sticks (one of each colour). They work like a lipstick and are a similar size too! Simply remove the lid, twist the base to push the paint stick up and you’re ready to create some amazing pictures!

The paint dries super quick within seconds and doesn’t sit wet on paper like traditional paints do. You don’t need any paint brushes or water, and I love that the paints don’t all run into each other making a wet yucky mess! Clear, bright and beautiful paintings created with ease.

These Galt Painting Sticks kept Ivy (aged 2) busy for hours. She seemed to enjoy the painting sticks just as much as ordinary paint. I know that she has played with painting sticks before, as I have some wonderful pictures that she has created at nursery using them.

I could easily get them out of the craft box and give them straight to Ivy. She could remove and replace the lids herself and twist up the paint sticks when needed. She soon learnt that because the Painting Sticks were quite soft, not too press too hard. Ivy loved the Painting Sticks and created some amazing paintings. She is always asking for the Sticks now, and for once I don’t silently sigh when she says that wants to paint! An instant win all round!

Galt Painting Sticks are available to buy directly from the Galt website or from Amazon. The Painting Sticks are £4.99 for a pack of 6.

  1. My Mom and I took painting lessons from Vi, maybe in the late 70s or 80s, at a “studio at Shadle Park in Spokane. She directed us through paintings in oils, all of us working on the same picture. I quit painting when my full time teaching job took up too much time, but my mom, Lorene Remmers, kept going to lessons with Vi for years. And Mom kept painting on her own, but always kept in touch with Vi. Vi visited my folks on one of her motor home trips after she left Spokane. When I wrote to Vi telling her of Mom”s passing February of 2017, she wrote back saying that she wanted Mom to keep the door to heaven open for her, as she wanted to join her soon. My family and many friends have beautiful oil paintings hanging on our walls.thank you, Vi.
