Make Me! Stick Dolls For Imaginative Play

When you’re a child you see everything differently, you see the world with a sprinkle of imagination. A cardboard tube isn’t just a cardboard tube – it’s a wand, a pair of skis, a light saber. Likewise sticks aren’t just sticks, they make simple and engaging handmade stick dolls, fence posts for a fairy garden, or even a ladder to the moon! – there are no limits to what everyday ‘stuff’ can be.

“think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if you only try” Dr Seuss

Molly’s favourite game to play with her new stick dolls is ‘hide and seek’ in the garden – stick dolls love hiding in the long grass…. I love this photo :)

This everyday recycling project was created as part of a new Sprinkles of Imagination campaign by the cool Nestle fab® Ice Cream team, which will run over the summer months. Nestle want to help parents and children see the world with a sprinkle of imagination, the essence of the campaign, and the reason I chose to join in the fun as a campaign ambassador… with more fun and creative ‘imagination-led’ ideas planned for the coming weeks.


Make sure to visit the fab® site for more information and details of some FabFunday events and a competition to win a family trip to Disney World Florida launching July 1st! Yes that’s right Disney Florida!!
