We all have concerns today over kids’ constant attachment to electronics, where they sit and passively stare at screens. They have lost the art of playing. They watch, rather than DO! Play is important to stimulate imagination and creativity and help develop cognitive thinking skills. We felt our product, along with many others, might take the lead in offering a break from screens with hands-on, engaged play!

The instruction sheets below include Making Wikki People (they are best made with six-inch Wikki Stix). The Wikki Stix for Doodlers is ideal for this and very inexpensive at only $3.95! For making Wikki Wacky Glasses, the longer eight-inch Wikkies are best, and we suggest either the Primary Pak, or the Neon Pak…each with 48 Wikki Stix, enough for several pairs of glasses!
The fish and butterfly designs can be cut from construction paper, and if you cut out three or four of each, you can actually string them together to make a mobile. Either length of Wikki Stix will be perfect for decorating and embellishing them. Just press the Wikkies onto the cutout with fingertip pressure… and you will have a colorful tropical fish and a beautiful butterfly!
