Instagram that Julia had made these adventure stick things. They were such a hit, and she had so much fun with them, that I felt compelled to follow up with a more complete posting. Julia was amusing herself the other day by skimming through Pinterest on my Fun Kid Stuff board and she paused on a nature hunt treasure stick craft, detailed on the Kiwi Crate site. Yes, that might be record amount of links thrown down in a single sentence.
(in other news, we might give Tinker Crate a try! I think it would be a cool holiday gift to sign up for a few months. you get fun experiments and craft boxes mailed to you each month, for 1 month, or 3 or 6 or a year, whatever you like. This isn't a sponsored post, but hey Kiwi Crate! if you want to sponsor us, we'd TOTALLY be into that! oh and i think right now is 25% off the first month with the code SEPFUN.)
Anyway, big thanks to them for the awesome idea, and who knew that twine, sticks, and leaves could yield so much entertainment? Julia and her neighborhood pals spent the entire afternoon 'adventuring', after a few of these sticks were made. I feel like seriously, if all I gave my kiddo this holiday season was a box with a pocket knife, some string, a slingshot, and a compass, she'd be the happiest camper alive. I love this time of her childhood! Everything is one grand adventure, it's the coolest.
