I came across this fantastic idea on The Growing Family blog. Next time you take your child on a nature walk up the mountain or in the forest, why not get them to collect things on their walk so they can make a "Journey Stick".
They could create it at home afterward or on the actual walk. You'd just need to take some string and/or some double sided tape and they could find a stick along the way.
Its a wonderful idea to get the children to really appreciate the nature around them and actually take the time to look for "treasures"
What do you think of the idea?
If you make one with your child I'd love to see a picture of it! Feel free to post a picture in the comment section or a link to your blog post.
