wikki sticks

Standard

My cousin got the boys something called ‘wikki stix’ when he visited us last month. They are made out of hand knitted yarn enhanced with a non toxic wax (www.wikkistix.com). Basically, they are thin waxy colored pliable sticks that can be bent, folded and shaped. They stick without any glue and can be reused as often as you want to.

I had not expected the boys to take to them the way they have and they really do enjoy playing with them..esp Sid (who carried them clutched tightly in his hand all the way from here to Lonavala). They are great to use, easy clean up and pretty non messy. We use them on the floor, on laminated writing boards, on windows panes and car windows too. They may leave a bit of a waxy residue that wipes off very easily. This keeps them occupied for good chunks of time and are great for some quiet play as well.

About myfourboysandme

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
