Saw this idea online and I knew I had to make it for my kids. They are so simple, yet they give way to so much imaginative play!
So simple to make, just take some Popsicle sticks – I used the coloured ones so that we can play colour matching and patterning but you can use the uncoloured ones (maybe even have the kids colour them or put stickers on them!)
Take some Velcro circles or squares (I found that the round ones would have fit better) and stick them on to each stick. Then let the kids enjoy building and creating!
Things to ask:
1. Can you stick together all the red, blue, green ones.
2. Can we make a pattern (red red blue blue)
3. Count how many red sticks, blue sticks, etc
These are great for rainy days or for long car (airplane) trips!
