BONUS DIY of the Week: Artic. Sticks

Okay, I admit, I like popsicle sticks, perhaps even a little too much.  And my kids seem to think they are magical as well.  So you can't blame a SLP for finding every way possible to use these beauties... and here's another:


To DIY you'll need about 60 sticks, a sharpie (fine point works best) and paint or paint dots.
As you can see, I simply painted each set of 10 sticks a different color (paint dots were used) and numbered.  So, I had ten pink 1's, ten blue 2's, and so on.  Then I placed them in my little $0.50 bag from Michaels and off we go.  Here are the games I like to play with it.  They love trying to beat me or their other group members!  Enjoy!

    1. I'm not sure why you can't access the document, the link is working (just tried when I wasn't logged in as well). The link is https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B5va1JDSKGNfNmhhWUJsTDJUYkszc2lUSlhCNWdrQQ so perhaps you will need to copy the link and paste it into your browser. It is a PDF file on google docs. If you still can't get it to work, I can e-mail it to you! Thanks!
