Following on from our magic days earlier in the week Alice had requested a broom for her beat baby cuddly toy to go with her wand. I did most of the construction today but once she’s been shown how to do something she’ll usually give it a go later in the week. So between downpours we managed a quick craft job in the garden. These are easy to make and you can make them on the go if you carry a bit string.
I collected up one thicker stick and a pile of thinner sticks and cut to the same length. I then wrapped it in florist wire to keep it secure.
Then to neaten it up and keep the look of a broom I wrapped it with twine.
Then the two of them went flying back and forth around the garden. She did lots of ‘flights’ jumping off the slide.
Then she helped out as the feeders were looking empty.
Though we moved off fast as we were looking to be swarmed.
I hope you enjoyed our simple craft for today. A good little bit of stick play for the imagination.
