Watch the story of Stanley's Stick on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfIuIQaOLlY collect as many sticks as you can find, think of ideas of what they could be, write these down on a note pad/ paper OR take photos of you holding the stick and then write/ type on what you are pretending it is using an IT device OR record a video of you saying what your sticks are, pretending to use them as different things. (Keep your sticks for Day 3).
Using sticks in mud/ water practice forming the letters of the alphabet saying the sentences from the activity sheet.
Count backwards with sticks (from 20/ from 30).
Be creative! Invent your own ‘Kerplunk’ game using whatever you can find. Take turns pulling the sticks/straws/spaghetti out of the holes, whoever drops the least leaves/balls/pompoms wins!
