This activity introduces children to the wonders of trees, the ‘wood wide web’ and three easy stick based play and learning activities. Sticks are arguably the world’s earliest known and greatest toy. For sticks are plentiful, free, have infinite uses and no batteries required.
Whether capturing a walk by making a Journey Stick or delighting everyone with a Magic Stick at home or playing the ‘What Am I?’ guessing game! The children will have hours of fun using these three simple and easy activities, and all you need is a stick!
You can download a tree and sticks work pack here which provides supporting information for teachers, parents and guardians, including safety information, fun facts, teaching tips, activities and games. We hope you have fun and enjoy!

Alexandra Palace is a charity, run for the benefit of everyone. Our Park, Palace and spectacular events have been enriching lives since 1863, but the coronavirus pandemic has hit us hard. To be blunt, we are looking at a £1m shortfall this year and the same again next year. We know this time has been hard on many people but, if you can afford it, your support will help us get through this crisis.
