Earlier this week I received a lovely package from CraftProjectIdeas.com 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

You can pair up the sticks based on color or patterns. My 2 year old worked on her pincer and fine motor skills by manipulating the little sticks into place.Sensory Stick Color Match with PowerfulMothering.com

Once my 2 year old was done and moved on to the next best thing (namely her new felt quiet book) my 5 year old took over and made a robot, among other things.stick robot
