Sticks are awesome! We regularly come back from the park with a collection of them.... sometimes the sticks are released back into the garden and sometimes we make them 'pretty'. This time we decided to make a glittery stick forest with our latest collection.
The kids love air drying clay and this was the perfect opportunity to use it again. We propped up our sticks in lumps of air drying clay – it is much sturdier than playdough. It would have been good to let the air drying clay dry before painting but the girls would not wait. They wanted a pink and purple stick forest so out came the paintbrushes and paint tubs. Once the paint was applied they went crazy with the glitter shakers and the sticks became 'pretty'.
When the paint was dry the kids set up their glittery stick forest up in our laneway fairy garden.
