the alphabet with fun, colorful Wikki Stix!
26 individual cards plus 36
Wikki Stix for hands-on educational fun! Each letter has directional
arrows to help create the proper "stroke" using the Wikii Stix. And,
each card has a fun Wikki illustration to copy for creative play time.
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.
