Stickman Ice Challenge

We have been loving reading “Stickman” by Julia Donaldson. Do you have the book at home? If not you can listen to the audio version on youtube. You can also watch the special narration of it here


Can you make your own stickman with the sticks you found on your walk? Once you have made him place him in a big bowl, pour water over him and put him in the freezer. What do you think will happen to the water? How long does the water take to freeze?

Stickman is stuck in the ice! Can you help free him so he can return to the family tree? Explore the different properties of ice, how does it feel? Is it hot or cold? How are you going to free him?

What about making up a new verse for the book. What happened to stickman, why is he covered in ice? Maybe he went for a swim or fell in a puddle..
