Who needs a Wii, here's a stick instead........

They are fishing poles, crutches, swords & spoons. They are piled & propped up to make the base of an invisible camp fire or a house for a fairy. They hold marshmallows over fires and provide arms for a beloved snowman. They are whatever a child wants them to be. They are sticks. And they have been inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame. Read more about the sticks induction here.

SO true! No child can resist a stick in any form can they?
I read something recently about toys that were whatever the imagination made them, were actually key in kids building self control. I thought it was a weird connection but the article made sense. Wish I could find it! Thanks for posting.
Sticks for all this Christmas! :D
