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!
You can submit any creations to email@example.com or by sharing on social media and we’ll make sure to share with our followers.

Alexandra Palace is run by a charity for the benefit of everyone. It’s loved by many people: as a historic landmark, ice rink, legendary gig venue, exhibition centre, theatre, park with panoramic views and more. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic our income has fallen catastrophically and our survival is at risk. Your support can help: as a charity, every £1 we receive is reinvested back into the organisation and will help us get back on our feet.
