Weaving twig wands

Some twigs, wool and a blunt needle are the only things needed for this woodland craft project, that the kids will get thoroughly engaged in.

An adventure is an essential beginning as first, forked twigs and branches must be collected from the garden or a walk in the woods. Any damp branches are left in a warm place indoors to dry out. Lichen can be cleaned off, but provides interesting texture and helps to keep the wool in place. The children are able to experiment with a variety of patterns and colours in their weaves. At the end they have their own, unique wishing wands.
