Stick Man is possibly my favourite ever children’s books and it’s been lovely to rediscover the joy of Julia Donaldson with Charlie over the last few years. He has really enjoyed playing with our Stick Man play dough and asks for it on an almost daily basis.
Stick Man Play Dough
All you need is brown and green play dough and some googly eyes. It really is the simplest activity but has led to many happy hours of play and chat in our house.
We made our play dough using the recipe on The Imagination Tree, it’s so easy to make and has a lovely consistency.
We took the opportunity to try some measuring with our Stick Man and children too!
