If you plan to do any hiking this summer or fall, decorating your own walking sticks can be fun.
All you need for this project is one 3/4″ x 48″ wooden dowel from the hardware store per person (No cutting or sanding required.), a variety of decorative Washi tape options, assorted gems and glue and any other decorations you desire.
Cut pieces of duct tape (a corkboard duct tape was particularly popular with my kids)...
and wrap around your stick.
Leave the rest to your kids imaginations.
You can use other materials to wrap around the stick and you can glue crystals or other items to the top of the stick.
Now they are ready to use for hiking!
