Last year, we gave Wikki Stix a try. The kids enjoyed making art with them but wanted to cut all of the pieces up. I was reluctant to let them do so because then they couldn’t be made long again. In any case, the kids managed to make some art using long pieces. Maybe I’ll let them do some cutting this year :-).
