Bendaroo Borders

The Activity:

A great way to teach children to color in the lines is by creating a solid border around the edge of the drawing. It’s not always enough to remind them “Color inside the lines”. They need a physical border. This activity is a wonderful way to make children aware of what it means to color inside the lines!

Wikki Stix or Bendaroos are strings covered in wax. They are a bit expensive but can be reused many times. Simply pick out a drawing from a coloring book or make your own drawing. Help your child stick the Wikki Stix/ Bendaroos along the image. Let your child color inside the border! Remove the was string and…tada! A perfect picture.
