Wikki Stix Alphabet Cards

Today, Adrian had fun "making" letters with Wikki Stix (see here), which are non-toxic colorful wax-yarn pieces that can be bent into any shape, stimulating imagination and creativity! The letter-cards provide step-by-step instructions on proper letter tracing, thus establishing a foundation for proper writing. We cut some yarn into smaller pieces, but the yarn can be bent as well. I also laminated the cards after all, for additional durability.

p.s. An update: Wikki Stix(s) do not stick as good to the laminated surface making it frustrating for Adrian to work with. Luckily, I laminated just a handful of cards, and I will leave the rest as is. This is where the practicality wins over aesthetically clean material :)
