I’ve been excited about doing this stick craft/activity with the children for weeks now. I wondered why, as the craft is fairly non-descript (or, as my husband said when I showed him the finished product, “Ahhhh, that’s good love.”) And then I realised, this craft is about the fun you have along the way.
All you need is a piece of string and the great outdoors. It’s as simple as that.
My girls and I gathered sticks and flowers and tied them with string to hang in their room (like a mobile). Collect light sticks, as they hang better, and vary the stick lengths along the string; larger at the bottom to smaller at the top.
Most of all, enjoy the fun you have along the way.
Here is a snapshot of the girls loving the moment.
