Sensory Stick Color Match with

Earlier this week I received a lovely package from full of rather happy neon colored items including this glitter glue and these mini craft sticks for free to play with!

I thought these mini craft sticks were rather awesome and before I went to bed that night an idea struck! I got the mini sticks out and made a few colorful patterns on them with the glitter glue and let them dry overnight.

Now, because the neon glitter glue drys raised it provides a rather wonderful sensory touch to this activity.pincer grip on small objects
