Build Forts from Sticks with Stick-lets!

Sticklets

Tila is most definitely outdoorsy type of girl so we try to spend outside as much time as humanly possible – she especially loves the playgrounds and the woods. There she needs to climb, walk on and jump off every tree log, move all the snails to a safe place, check out all the bugs, pick a bunch of flowers and kick just about every stone. We both love and encourage that adventurous side of her. We even measure the amount of fun she has by the amount of dirt that ends up on her clothes and shoes. And we always come home with a bunch of mementoes of course – mostly sticks. I have even tried to think of a craft that would involve all those sticks we have lying around the garden or a fun game but I couldn’t. And then I spotted these amazing STICK-LETS over at Rasselfisch that solved that pickle!

What a cool idea: silicone joints that hold the sticks together in order to build things like tunnels, forts, houses or different kinds of shapes! They are water resistant, reusable and stretchy in order to bind together sticks of various sizes. Isn’t this just the best idea ever?

Stick-lets are only available at Rasselfisch or thru Kickstarter – they still need to pledge about $22.000 in 8 days to get this project funded
