Nature wands with art supplies

Scavenge and Craft Nature Wands

A scavenging stick (or nature wand) is a stick that tells a story of your wild adventures. It is stick that allows all of the treasures you have found to be displayed and used for magic or storytelling. Maybe your stick can be the keeper of stories in the special fort you made out of the other sticks you’ve collected. Whatever you use it for, you can always add to your scavenging stick as each new treasure comes your way.
