Here’s How to Make the Nature Craft:
Head outside and search for sticks that look like people. This craft is great because you sticks are available anytime of year!
We searched the ground for sticks and found a ton of a fallen branches! We have looked for stick people before for our Stick Man activity, but loved this idea of searching for dancing stick people. Once you find a stick. you might need to pick off a couple of little sticks to make your person. They can be hard to find at first and then all of a sudden, they seem to be everywhere! We even found stick animals!
My boys couldn’t resist playing with the stick people. Our sticks were pretty thin and fragile, so they had to be gentle with their dancing pieces of nature.
Now that you have a collection of stick people, grab a piece of cardboard. We used a long piece of white poster board to make the sticks stand out. You can tape you stick people right on the cardboard.
We decided to add flower heads to our stick people, so I poked holes right above the sticks to thread the flower stems through. My boys taped the stems to the back of the piece of cardboard.
I added this step from the original post, so it is optional!
It turned out so cute! My boys had fun mimicking the sticks and are constantly searching for more dancing sticks to add to their collection. This is such a simple and fun way to connect kids with nature and get them outside!
I love this one so much that we might need to find a bigger piece of poster board to show off our dancing nature collection!
