Junior GeoStix was a blast for our daughter. She loved getting to put them together and make the different ideas on the cards. It was a little difficult at first for her to put the sticks together but she eventually got the hang of it. I think these are great for creativity and math skills.
I make things with them and the give her some sticks and ask her to make similar items with the sticks she was given. Or give her a bunch a sticks and ask her to make certain shapes or letters. What is really neat is seeing her creativity come out when she makes whatever she can imagine.
