Making and using a Journey Stick is an ancient method of recording and finding your way in nature.
In order to make a journey stick you need a stick, elastic bands and, of course a journey!
In this resource we take you on a nature connection inspired journey as we travel from place to place stopping to add items to our journey stick and taking time to connect with nature.
You'll be guided at different steps to connect with your senses: sight, smell, taste, hearing and touch, along with a spot of barefoot walking.
This activity boosts your wellbeing in the following ways:
Keep Learning- discover new plants in your local area and understand your journey through an ancient method.
Get Active- Enjoy the fresh air and exercise as you journey through your local area. Try a range of environments.
Practise Kindness- Along the way stop and speak to those that you see, maybe even leave some seeds out for the birds.
Be Mindful- Follow the guided nature connection activities along the way and really begin t build a relationship with place.
Think Community- do a #micromission along the way by picking up litter and making your local area a better place to live.
