The Stick Book (Paperback)

Fiona Danks


The stick is a universal toy. Totally natural, all-purpose, free, it offers limitless opportunities for outdoor play and adventure and it provides a starting point for an active imagination and the raw material for transformation into almost anything! As New York's Strong National Museum of Play pointd out when they selected a stick for inclusion in their National Toy Hall of Fame, 'It can be a Wild West horse, a medieval knight's sword, a boat on a stream, or a slingshot with a rubber band ...' In this book Fiona Danks and Jo Schofield offer masses of suggestions for things to do with a stick, in the way of adventures and bushcraft, creative and imaginative play, games, woodcraft and conservation, music and more.

Stick it on your shelf -

I bought this for my brother hoping it was a bushcraft type book, but although he may be disappointed with the general level of skill required, his 6 and 7 year old children won't be, but there are also quite a few challenging ideas which will test my brother. It has lots of fantastic and inspiring ideas, which make you think "Why didn't I think of that?" I'm now going to buy one for myself to share with my 3 year old daughter as I believe it will encourage us to go outside and get creative and imaginative. What I particularly like is that the end results don't need to be neat and tidy like some craft ideas.
