My boys and I had a great time at the Earth Trust today. The Earth Trust was running one of their many summer holiday activities. Discover and Play is a 2 hour forest school session for preschoolers. There were lots of activities and they both really enjoyed making their own nature wands. Who knows, they might even be magic.

Time: 15 minutes
Age: Under 5's
Level: Easy

Materials
Pipe cleaners
Stick
Bits and pieces collected from a nature walk

Method
This activity is best combined with a walk through the woods. Start by looking for the perfect stick. My boys love sticks and always pick up a few on a walk. We found a big pile in the woods and they both selected a few straight, thin sticks of perfect magic wand dimensions.

Search around for interesting things to attach to the wand. There are lots of different shapes and textures about and even bunches of seeds from trees that make a sound when you shake them.

Simply use a pipe cleaner, wrapping it around the things you have collected to the stick.

Now your nature wand is ready. You'll be surprise how such a simple activity has so much appeal and creates a lovely hands on nature experience.
