Journey Sticks

A journey stick (also known as a story stick or a nature stick) is a memento of a nature walk, featuring items collected while on a journey. This might be things like leaves, flowers,  feathers or anything else you might find naturally.

You will need a stick, some coloured wool and your imagination!

 Use the wool to attach your findings to your stick and keep collecting.

Don’t forget to tell the story of your walk or adventure to your family, friends and even your teachers.
