As a forest-loving family, we love Stick Man, a fantastic Christmas book about a family of stick people living in a family tree. When Stick Man gets mistaken for a stick by a playful dog, he’s carried away far from home and his loved ones. Through the book, he survives many adventures before finally returning to his family tree on Christmas night. Since I always pick up pinecones, acorns and sticks on family walks in the woods, we have a big bag of sticks at home. With Christmas approaching, I brought out twine, baubles and jingle bells to make this Stick Man-inspired twig Christmas ornament. It’s an easy craft that you can make with your kids after reading the book.

I love when books can be turned into nature crafts at home and my girls enjoy getting creative with natural materials. As soon as Halloween was over, I jumped onto the Christmas crafts bandwagon with glee. Since days are getting quite short and winter isn’t far, November doesn’t seem that early to indulge in festive crafts with the kids.
