My girls love to do arts and crafts. We have an entire closet full of craft kits, play-doh, paints, stamps, and the list goes on and on. On rainy or snowy days, my girls break out the bins of supplies and get creative. Now they have a new favorite to add to their list of go-tos – Wikki Stix. Wikki Stix are lengths of yarn coated with food grade wax. Wikki Stix are completely pliable, and stick to paper with out any glue. Kids use their own imagination to bend the sticks into their own designs, and it’s amazing what they’ll come up with!
Great Gift Ideas from Wikki Stix
Wikki Stix gave me 3 products to review:
1) The Wikki Stix Activity Set
2) Wikki Stix Card Making Kit
3) Wikki Stix Holiday Crafts
The Wikki Stix Activity Set – $16.95
This set is made up of a lap-size white board, 84 Wikki Stix in 16 colors, and dot-to-dot templates. This set has won the Parents’ Choice Classic Toy Award. This is one of my daughters’ favorites. It now stays in our car, and has gone to church with us, to PTO meetings, on longer car rides, and to a variety of waiting rooms. My 5 year old, Lila, LOVES it. She has tons of fun making her own creations on the white board and practicing her alphabet using Wikki Stix. I love a toy with educational value!
Wikki Stix Card Making Kit – $14.95
These are super cute too! Last month, Lila’s kindergarten teacher celebrated her birthday. Lila made her a card using the Wikki Stix. It turned out incredibly cute! She started off using the butterfly dot-to-dot template. She pressed her design onto the card, and then created the cute Wikki Stix polka-dot pattern for the inside of the butterfly.
Didn’t she do a nice job?! Her ten year old sister, Alyssa, saw what she was doing, and decided she wanted to get in on the Wikki Stix party. She was working on a language arts project, and decided to use the Wikki Stix to add a little pizzazz.
It worked! Her project turned out so cute. And, even though she just created it on regular copy paper rather than something sturdier, the Wikki Stix stuck on, all the way to school.
Wikki Stix Christmas Fun Activity Book – $8.95
Kids can busy themselves during Christmas break with these fun activities! The book includes over 25 activities: making a garland, counting and matching activities, designs to trace, a photo ornament to customize, and a 3D reindeer.
This kit comes with 36 Wikki Stix. Sit your kids at the kitchen table with this kit, and I bet you could get lots of gift wrapping, baking, or or internet shopping done while they have a blast!
