One of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon is on a nature walk looking for “creatures” and “treasures” with the twins. We have been lugging home baskets and baskets of odds and ends that we find on our walks, including a healthy stick collection. This week I decided to feature ten stick crafts from our Discover & Explore linky for inspiration next time you find yourself with a bundle of sticks on a sunny afternoon. This is a really beautiful collection- I hope you enjoy it! Click on the text links or photos to view the original tutorials.
