Kids these days tend to spend a lot of time unengaged, passively watching something on a device so it is absolutely great to see them unplug and engage in creative play. Summertime often means finding news ways to engage your kids in active play. I have pulled out an old favorite for my kids and they are just loving it. These Wikki Stix craft activities for kids are so fun. I love to watch them build and create and give shape to their imagination. I have partnered with Wikki Stix, one of a kind creatables, to share their unique product that delights, inspires and entertains children with engaged fun. Here are several fun Wikki Stix ideas for the kids to try.
What Are Wikki Stix?
First let me tell you what Wikki Stix are in case you are unfamiliar with this awesome craft toy. Wikki Stix are these amazing strings that stick together without making other surfaces sticky. Kids can use Wikki Stix to create all kinds of flat shapes, letters, numbers, or art. They can also use Wikki Stix to creat all kinds of 3D shapes, sculptures, toys, and pretty much anything they can imagine. Kids love the endless possibilities and parents love the no mess creative play! They are the award-winning original and have been made in the USA for more than 28 years!
Wikki Stix do not break or tear but they can easily be cut with scissors. They do not contain latex, gluten, or nut oils or byproducts, which makes them an ideal creative activity toy for children with allergies. Both boys and girls love them equally. They make the ideal reusuable modeling material and interactive teaching tool.

They are great for everything from letter formation to number recognition to shape outline. The non-toxic wikki stix are also a wonderful way to practice fine motor skills.
Two Wikki Stix Craft Activities For Kids that snagged my children’s attention were the Amimal Activity Pak and The Sea Life Activity Pak. Both of these provided guided Wikki Stix activities for kids. The truth is they are a great springboard for sparking your child’s creativity. However, there are so many fun ways to use these removable wax-coated strings. And one of the fun parts about these wikki stix educational toys is seeing what the kids come up with all by themselves during free play.

For younger kids, they will enjoy the challenge of connecting the dots and becoming familiar with the animals. For older kids, they will enjoy learning the animal facts and reusing the Wikki Stix in creative ways to make all kinds of things. I love seeing my kids involved in creative activities because it not only encourages them to use their imagination but it also builds their confidence as they see that they can create and build. I take pride in their creations and it gives them pride in themselves.
