A friend of mine posted a message on Facebook asking if anyone had a portable DVD player she could borrow for her son for an upcoming plane ride. While that is a great idea to occupy the little movers, I found that Wikki Stix can be a lifesaver, too! They stick to the airplane tray so that you’re not constantly bending over to pick them up and you can do so much with them! It will take some of your engagement so that you can suggest some different things to do with them: wrap them around a finger or pencil, make jewelry, twist two of them together and shape them into a candy cane, form shapes, letters or a picture, etc. Also, anything magnetic is good so that you have some control of all of the pieces. Watch for Fundanoodle’s Magna Stix (www.fundanoodle.com)! Enjoy your upcoming holiday travel!
