The sessions are now back on for our Forest school and one of the first jobs of the day was to decorate the handles of our new Stickbread sticks. We have lengths of willow that have been coppiced and and one end has been slightly tapered. This is where the bread dough gets wrapped. The other end then gets decorated with yarn to make a handle for the children to hold while they cook their bread over the campfire.

Even the very little ones gave it a go. We did help tighten it up a bit but he picked his colours and did the winding!

The sticks look really lovely together and nice a bright once finished.
It also helps the children to distinguish what is a stick to play with and what is a tool for our group.

You can use this technique to make decorations for the garden. Use shorter lengths and wrap them in yarn, then hang the sticks from a tree for a lovely rainbow craft!


  1. Oh I love these they look really fab. Sarah #adventurecalling

  2. This looks great fun and I like the idea of hanging them from the trees too. Mmm yummy breadsticks cooked on the fire! #AdventureCalling

  3. What a brilliant idea!


  4. I love this idea! We're heading camping next week and looking forward to some campfire cooking so these would be perfect. I think that our toddler would love decorating a stick as well. Thanks so much for sharing with us #AdventureCalling

  5. This looks like a great idea. We've just come back from a great camp where we roasted several thousand marshmallows so we could have done with these. Thanks for joining us on #adventurecalling I hope you can again this week.

  6. What a lovely activity and I'm a fan of the bright colours #adventurecalling
