The invasion of the stick men

Our Wild Kids Club had a blast in the woods last week. If you’re are fans of Julia Donaldson’s books you might be able to guess where the inspiration came from! Yes, that’s right, it’s The Stick Man.


Tatum created a range of games around the theme and the kids made some beautiful stick men and houses for them to live in. All they needed were a few sticks and some leaves, flowers, feathers, moss and grass (all easily found in the woods at Bosinver) plus some thick string to hold the stick figures together and a little bit of clay.

Making houses from natural materials is a brilliant activity that’s easy to replicate in the garden at home, or in a local park or woodland. You could even recreate the story with your stick figures if you like, or make up your own stories.

More ideas for outdoor fun

We love Fiona Danks’ books – they’re are packed full of ideas for great outdoor activities for kids of all ages.

If you’ve ever wondered how many activities you can do with a humble stick, take a look at The Stick Book: Loads of things you can make or do with a stick.

We’ve got a copy in the office if you’d like to have a look next time you’re down at Bosinver. And naturally we’d love to see your hear how you get on if you decide to give any of them a go.

Have you been inspired to create anything or make up your own games based on your favourite books?
