The Activity Set is a Parents' Choice CLASSIC award winner,
containing 84 Wikki Stix in 16 colors and two sizes (48 8-inch
and 36 6-inch), plus multi-use playboard, handy storage bag
and eight pages of fun ideas and illustrations.
Soft and pliable, Wikki Stix can be used by small fingers for all kinds of fine motor skills... from learning to form letters and numbers to simple grip and finger strengthening exercises. These same concepts are applicable for arthritic fingers as well.
A few ideas to try:
Perfect for making a raised border to show where to start and stop on the paper.... and to make coloring inside the lines easier.
Zip it up! Thread a Wikki through the hole on the zipper and twist. Makes it easier to pull up and down with the Wikki to hold onto.
Wrap a Wikki around the base of a pencil for use as a grip; also a reminder to "hold it down low".
Wikki Stix are a quiet and creative fidget tool, providing a calming effect which may help children better focus on classroom activities.
Wikkies may help generate verbal interaction, as children create while using them. This may also be helpful in the development of social skills, through tactilely engaging play.
