Good for children

Comments about TwisteezWire Twisteez:
I use this with my students for wire sculpture typically. However the metal wire is thin with a thick layer of color-coating, so it is not good for small tight forms nor jewelry, but fine for medium-larger looser forms.

Flexible and creative
By Art Smart
These colorful wires are the beginning of so many creative ventures. They are price worthy and lend themselves to creating a variety of artistic forms. I enjoy working with them and teaching others also.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Versatile and fun
from Portage, Michigan
Great, colorful, and fun way to experiment with 3-D art. These are very easy to bend and wrap and they hold their shape reasonably well so long as there's no pressure or weight to support. They definitely need a more rigid wire as an armature if you plan on making anything of any size other than a few inches. Still, these are always popular and fun to use with students.
It it an art, engineering or OT tool?
I used these wires to do an integrated science, engineering, and art lesson. Second graders designed, built, tested, and improved pollinators using Twisteez and a variety of other materials. They worked as artists and selected what they needed to make their design come to life. We spent a session practicing with the wire (bending, folding, curling, looping and twisting) which they loved and which allowed them to create their pollinator with more independence the next session. The variety of creations was inspiring as were the "specimen cards" which explained the special features of their creation and its name.

I love Twisteez!!
By Ms. Beth, Resilience Teacher
from Kansas City, Missouri
I am using this product to teach kids about their brains. Every kid gets to make a brain out of twisteez. The kindergarteners can work at there level and the 6th graders can work at there level. With twisteez, the possibilities are endless! And the colors are beautiful and even the most rudimentary sculputures look good.

Versatility of Twisteez
from Greenville, NC
I first used Twisteez as a Summer Art Camp Teacher. Introducing 3D sculpture is a great way to explore these colorful, fun, flexible wires. I have also used them for decorating what I call Hubcap Mandalas, which is a way to recycle and share the joy of transforming found art objects (hubcaps) into something useful (meditative art). They work much better than pipe cleaners because they last forever and have a more professional look. Finally, I will be using Twisteez recently to add the mane and tail to a Race Horse sculpture made from steel railroad track pieces...for the perfect finish!

Great for All Skill Levels!
from Evansville, IN
I teach in a K-8 Art classroom. What I really love about the Twisteez wire is that it is so easy to manipulate, even for the smallest hands. The wire is easy to cut as well as bend and smooth out. The students really love how bright and colorful the wire is.
