We shared Stick-lets on a Fort Friday post almost one year ago and I am SO excited that they are now readily available! Stick-lets are stretchy little connectors that allow kids to create amazing forts and play spaces using sticks and other found objects.
I loved this idea when I first saw the prototype so jumped on the chance to play when Christina asked if she could send us some.
Apparently we have a shortage of good sticks here in this part of the desert but my boys found some store bought ones we had for another project and got to work. Sometimes I’ll show them how something works but these I let them have the bag without saying anything.
They played outside for hours and I popped out here and there when they asked me to take a picture
The great thing about these is that there is no real wrong or right way to use them. You manipulate and maneuver them until it works for you.
They made multiple configurations and I heard them talking about making sure we had them with us next time we go camping.
Such a fun, inexpensive way to get the kids outside and using their imagination!
Metropolismag.com has a fantastic article about Christina and Stick-lets that explains it so much better than I ever could (I’m good at showing but not explaining)
You can buy your own Stick-lets on their site.
