Twigs and Sticks

We're pretty thrifty at the Shop of Possibilities, and like to think we (children and staff!) can see play potential in a lot of abandoned objects and materials. This post is about a bunch of twigs and sticks found on Elmington estate by Jack which he brought back to the Shop of Possibilities for the children to play with. This how they were used:

Initially one became a walking stick

We used it to measure who was tallest. Lamare won.

Tracing patterns on the floor

They became sports equipment

This one made a perfect hockey stick

They were used in a slightly more abstract sculptural way

Which provoked a serious response from Ben
Simple stuff, but lots of fun!
