Discover a treasure trove of exciting nature-based building, engineering, and artistic ideas for children in Sticks and Stones. This comprehensive guide features tools, toys, and games kids can create right outside their door.

Kids will love building cabins, bridges, dams rock gardens, and more. They'll discover that creating art is more fun outdoors as they learn to make making stone pendants, ochre paint, and weaving. A variety of large and small-scale activities boost engineering, creative, and problem-solving skills, all while promoting fun. With simple tools and materials a branch becomes a fishing pole, and logs turn into a simple seesaw.

Opportunities and materials for productive play exist everywhere in nature.

Whether camping in the woods or hanging out in the back yard, children will marvel at the wonderful, useful tools and playthings they can create with natural objects.
