One of the favourite stories of the children is "Not a Stick" by Antoinette Portis. In this story, a stick becomes more than a stick through the character's imagination and play. Inspired by the story, we went to the forest to find our own "not a stick." Looking for sticks excited the children and brought their creativity to life. Their imagination transformed the ordinary stick into musical instruments, a walking stick, a hammer, paintbrushes, and a pen to name just a few. Showing the many uses of a "not a stick", the children expressed their talents for making the ordinary into extraordinary.
