"A beautiful and inspiring book, bursting with practical suggestions which will appeal to every child's imagination. Reading it, I wanted to rush out to my nearest wood immediately!"
Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo

Who doesn't love a stick? The universal toy for children and adults alike, sticks can provide endless opportunities for outdoor adventures, creative play, woodcraft and conservation. Packed with 70 ideas and projects, The Stick Book will give you loads of ideas for using the wonderful, free and all-natural toy: the stick.

As The National Museum of Play (New York) pointed 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 ...' A stick can be anything you want it to be. This book will give you loads of inventive ideas for spending quality time outdoors with your children - from the adventurous to the magical, getting creative to playing games, making music to building bug hotels. Try your hands at:

Making a DIY tent or denCreating a woodland monster or magic carpetWild weaving or making your own natural wind chimesPlaying capture the flag or a woodland mapping gameMaking a bird feeder or bug hotel


With 70 ideas and projects, there will be something for every little adventurer, dreamer or budding ecologist in The Stick Book. All you need to get started is ... a stick!
