I got a sample of wikki stix with my renewal of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. My children loved them but with 8 dc the price was a bit daunting. Then I remembered I had the instructions saved to make them. These aren't hard to make but very very messy and time consuming. But you get huge results for your effort. We got about 1,000 sticks out of it. We covered the table plus 3 craft tables. And mine were longer than real ones.
