It was early 2014 and one of our Flying Fox Studios educators discovered a product called Stick-lets. How excited we were to discover a wonderful, outdoor, resource that is designed to connect kids with nature. Made of 100% silicone, Stick-lets come in various sizes with 2, 3 or 4 holes that allow you to bind sticks,dowel or rods together. The open ended construction possibilities are endless.
Our own kids use ours to make massive cubby houses and complicated mazes with sticks and sometimes sheets or tarps. They are fantastic for a day, weekend or school holiday project.
Over the years Stick-lets has continued to be a popular addition to our Steam Kids universe, encouraging kids to get outside, away from screens and reconnect with the great outdoors.
We had a ball with a mini set at the World Science Festival in Brisbane in both 2017 and 2018, it's always amazing to us as educators to see the problem solving happen when kids have access to a resource that doesn't do all the thinking for them.
We love the Mega Fort Kit as a family kit. It comes with 18 multi-coloured pieces and a tote bag which is plenty for a couple of kids working together. We also stock a range of larger and smaller kits, suitable both to smaller and giant projects. We look forward to stocking Stick-lets for many years to come!
New in 2018, the small 90 piece education set. We have such high demand for Stick-lets from groups such as bush playgroups, schools, homeschooling groups we are excited to keep adding to our education range.
