After a stint playing in the backyard or off on one of our family adventures, it is always a game of what “favorite” thing they have brought in now. The perfect stick, the 10 rocks they just can’t live without, the best worm friend ever that is now living in a coat pocket… Have you ever pulled a worm out of a coat pocket?
I love that my kids are in awe of the natural world around them but with 5 of them bringing in these loads of new treasures every time they leave the house, it is a little overloading. So to be proactive about it, I’ve been on the lookout for projects to actually use all these treasures.
Today it’s sticks. What can we do with all those sticks? Luckily, there are some superbly creative parents out there to give use some ideas for stick projects for the kids.
Rainbow Wind Chimes from Happy Hooligans
Nature Weaving from Craftiments
Wall art like this Twig Heart Canvas from Red Ted Art
Twig String Art Ornaments from Pink Stripey Socks
Add a little STEAM with Stick Raft Building from Kids Craft Room
Stick Star Mobile from Happy Hooligans
Colorful Walking Sticks from Choose Cartons
Well there are some projects to get us started! I know my kids will want to make some instruments so we will have to be on the lookout for just the right stick. I’m sure they can handle it 😉
We’d love to see what stick creations you kids are making so give use a shout out on social media!
See you outside!
