    My kids love wikki stix and can create shapes and pictures with them. However, I am already thinking about the fall and my next group of kids. I'm looking for some activity cards that I can print online or any other ideas.

    I made my own activity cards for using with wikkistix/bendaroos. I simply made them on the computer about the size of the larger index cards, maybe a bit bigger depending on what it was,but small enough to fit in the same rubbermaid type bin as the bendaroos. I made letter ones (uppercase on one side, lower case on the other), number ones (with # on one side and dots to count to figure out the number on the back), shapes, mazes (follow the road to get from the dog to the bone etc), matching (use the wikkistix to make a line from the upper case A to the lower case a, or between the pictures that match etc), and pictures of things like a house, a car, a plane, a ball, an umbrella,animals etc by tracing around stencils with a permanent marker. Then I laminated them all. The kids love to "trace" them with the bendaroos. They often try to make the same thing without the "stencil card" (that's what they call them). It was pretty inexpensive to do since the center has a small laminator. If you don't have access to a laminator you could make the cards from cardstock to make them stiffer and laminate them with clear contact paper

    They sell books with patterns but their site also has a few you can print and laminate if you want to check out the wikki stix site.
