Painted sticks. What a great summertime project for kids. I can picture several of these on a wall, either grouped into an abstract design or formed into a frame around a picture. Could also use the sticks to spell out the child's name. Ideas are limitless.

So simple, so beautiful, great way for kids to display their creativity. Great talking stick craft idea for kids to take home.
