February is the month of love and with almost no cost you can make a lovely wrapped stick arrangement. This activity is a great excuse to explore the woods to collect sticks.
This is a really easy activity to do and the beauty of it is that because the sticks are all different shapes and sizes it looks really effective
- sticks (at least as thick as your finger);
- red & pink wool;
Start by tying the wool at the end of the stick then begin winding the wool around the stick until you’re happy with the section (about 1″-2″). Tie and cut off and repeat with the next colour.
Add some cardboard hearts to the sticks and them put them in a vase or jar.
The children really enjoyed winding the wool around the sticks. Some were wound more carefully than others, but that didn’t matter because they all looked great.
