Make a journey stick

Keep a record of your adventures: make a super journey stick!

Take some coloured wool or string with you next time you’re off on your travels. Then find a stick and tell the story of your journey.

  • Which colour or object represents a different feeling, sight or smell?
  • If you’ve been on a big adventure, choose a long stick; choose a smaller one for a shorter journey
  • Does your journey have a special theme? Maybe flowers, or leaves?

When you’ve finished weaving your story, write it down and share it with your family and friends. Do they think it represents your journey?
