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.

I loved browsing through this book with my kids! It spurred them on to so many ideas. It is a bit colder outside now, but once we get some warm days again I want to take an afternoon outside and create some of the projects we found. I know my 10 year old wants to make a fort. We have a small section of woods so sticks shouldn't be hard to come by. I love the idea of making a mini village with sticks, and using little figures to run through it. I remember seeing something like that at a museum once and it was so creative!! This is a beautiful book, rich in imagination and ideas!! I received a copy of it in exchange for an honest review.
No review, just think this would be a great stocking-stuffer for grandchildren!
