Velcro Sticks

Age: 3-5, 6-8
Location: All
Set-up: Planned

Materials:

  • Velcro stickers
  • 10 or more Popsicle sticks or something similar

Set-up:

Buy velcro stickers or strips of velcro that you can cut into smaller pieces. The stickers that work best are the round velcro stickers. Holding a popsicle stick horizontally, stick one side of the velcro sticker onto the right side of the popsicle stick. Flip the popsicle stick over and stick the corresponding velcro sticker to the left side of the popsicle stick. Do this with all of your popsicle sticks.
Note: if you don't have popsicle sticks, you can make the same game with thick cardboard cut into 1 inch width strips.

Play:

Have your child stick two different popsicle sticks using the corresponding velcro stickers. Let your child enjoy making different sequences or stacks by pairing the popsicle sticks in different ways!
