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!
