The stick is perhaps one of the oldest and, arguably, one of the best loved toys of all time and here’s an opportunity to choose one, harvest it from the woodland, trim to size and then start creating…. maybe the stickman to go with reading the story? Maybe a magic wand to cast spells, a sword to fight off dragons, a tracking stick to help you find secretive creatures and places, a measuring stick or maybe a picture frame or a dreamcatcher? There are so many things you can make out of a stick, but the challenge is in finding just the ‘right one’!
Some people find, once they start looking and exploring, that a particular stick ‘calls’ to them, which is how they know it’s ‘their stick’.
There will be a camp fire on the go for everyone to enjoy with drinks available throughout the session and hot dog sausages and popcorn cooked over the fire – yum! (all included in the ticket price)
This is also a great opportunity to spend some time connecting with the sights and sounds of nature, to relax and benefit your wellbeing.
