We love to incorporate our little magic wand craft into a whole series of magical crafts, stories and adventures. This craft goes especially well with “Room on the Broom” book.

So we go on a magical adventure through the woods to search out the perfect sticks for wand making.

  • sticks – pick them up from the woods
  • paint – just choose your colours – we’ve used blues, purples and blacks.
  • strips of coloured material – different textures and colours works best as it adds more interest.
  • ribbon – again, choose different colours and fabrics.
  • scissors

  •  Leave the magic wands to dry. If you want them to be water-proof you need to add a layer of varnish once the coloured paint has dried.
