Stick Man by Julia Donaldson is one of my favourite children’s books, I think party because it reminds me of Autumn and Christmas which are my favourite times of the year.
Stick Man has inspired a lot of fun activities in our house recently. We hope you like them and do let us know if you have any we haven’t thought of.
How to make a Stick Man
Making a Stick Man is a great opportunity to test different materials to see which make the best model.
This example is made using glu-dots to hold the sticks together, they were surprisingly strong and allowed a lot of movement of limbs.
We also tested elastic bands, string and normal glue. Glu-dots seemed to work the best.
Can you give your Stick Man some leaf hair or some clothes?
Or maybe you’ll be lucky enough to find the perfect Stickman stick like ours!
Red Ted Art also has some brilliant and beautifully decorated stick people.
We love this gorgeous Stick Man craft from Lalymom too!

Tree themed activity ideas
How do you know how old and tall a tree is?
Make a map of the forest
Can you make a map for Stick Man showing all his adventures like this one we made for Little Red Riding Hood.
How about a game of pooh sticks? We sometimes decorate our sticks with leaves so we can tell the different between them
Or some raft making? Once you’ve made the raft find somewhere to test it and investigate to discover how much weight it can hold without breaking!
