We Play - Coloured Icypole Sticks

Ages ago, someone gave one of my kids a pack of miscellaneous crafty objects for a birthday. That pack included a bundle of multi-coloured icypole sticks, I assume intended to be used as part of montages or pasting crafts.

Well, they've never been used that way, but last week, they were put to another use in play!

The kids made pictures with them

and patterns

and then decided to lay out a trail for their littlest sister to follow to find her "treasure" (a storybook and a chocolate frog) at the end.

Much hilarity, and a half-day in the school holidays, done and dusted!


  1. What a great idea for the kids to use their imagination. And even better--those sticks can be used over and over again.

  2. Love this!! We played in a similar way with q tips recently, but offcourse these are more colorful.. should try it

  3. Oh I LOVE this... so creative and can be used over and over again! How clever!

  4. Wow! Looks like fun. I especially love the treasure trail.

  5. I love this, it's fantastic on so many levels and I am going to link to it from my FB page :)
