Yes, you can play with sticks....

We let kids play with toy guns,
and play video games based on death and destruction,
YET, we somehow justify a restriction on sticks
..............as if they were a symbol of pure violence.

Sticks are simply THE most amazing boy toys,
they can become anything, anything at all.

In an instant,
it's a sword,
a spear,
a laser beam,
a fishing pole,
a broom
a horse
a magic wand
a magic anything

Suddenly with a stick you are a royal king,
in a kingdom all your own.

Set some guidelines and allow
allow
allow
sticks back into your child's world......

Childhood is can't be magical without it.
