Encouraging Creativity Through Play

Wiki Stix

Children are naturally creativity. They can create something from nothing, really! For example, my boy's current craze are pencil lead boxes. He would turn his lead boxes into planes and trains and have a competition with his friends in school to see whose lead box is stronger and can knock the other person's lead box off the table.

My girl used to pour glue into her lead box, color them with highlighter and turn them into crystals by peeling them off when they were dry. To my chagrin, she made many of these crystals in different colors and placed them all over her table.

Anyway, this is not about my kids, although I just love to talk about them. This post is about Wikki Stix MY. Wikki Stix are "sticks" that kids can use to create amazing stuff using their imagination. The "sticks" are made of hand-knitted yarn enhaced with a special non-toxic wax that are safe for children to handle.

What I love about Wikki Stix is the fact that they stick by light fingertip pressure on any smooth surface without glue, paste or mess! Once your child is done playing with them, you can just peel them off easily. Yay! That scores a big point with me, a busy SAHM and an online writer. I don't have time for cleaning up mess. Besides, I have always thought the children to pick up after themselves, so they can easily do so with this creative educational toy.

Now, for the interesting part for my Malaysian blogger and Facebook friends, the made in US product Wikki Stix is now in Malaysia, brought to you by Montessorimum whom I have known for as long as I am blogging, which is since 2004! We have lots in common till she decided to have two more kids. She is an amazing mom of four.

In fact she is currently running a Giveaway for the Wikki Stix Numbers And Counting Set.

The deadline is Sunday, 30th September 2012 so you still have time to enter the giveaway. Do check it out my fellow Malaysian bloggers and facebookers especially those with young creative kids. You still have chance to enter this giveaway contest and win a surprise toy for your child.
