Ah, the craft stick--that most ubiquitous of art supplies! Craft sticks have fortified countless cabins, propped up innumerable paper puppets, and provided the framework for frames beyond measure. Their versatility makes them a favorite around these parts. And if you're really lucky, you can obtain them the old-fashioned way. (By snacking on Popsicles!) Craft stick puzzles build up patterning and sequencing skills--plus they're a hit with kids of all ages!
