Monday Music Manipulatives: Wikki Sticks for Vocal Exploration

It's MONDAY!!!

Time for more music manipulatives!

Last Friday one of the band teachers in my district gave me a package of Wikki Stix. I had never seen anything like them before. They are pieces of yarn covered in wax that you can bend to create different shapes. I thought they would be a fun toy to add to my collection for vocal exploration.

Here's what the package looks like:

And here are some fun ways you can bend them for vocal exploration!

I'd love to get enough to have a class set, but they are sure fun to bend and play with!

  1. Great idea! I use wikki stix when we are doing popsicle stick rhythms. I use them to tie two ta's together and then create a half note.
