The Crafting Chicks

Hiking is a great way to spend time as a family without spending a lot of money. Once you cover a few snacks and a backpack with some essentials, you're pretty much set. Or at least so we thought until we came across these super awesome walking sticks — your kids are going to need these!

Crafting Chick Kirsten and her cousin Brooke have been busy making decorative walking sticks. They used painters tape and spray paint to give them stripes, but you and your kids could choose another design. The result are these beautiful walking sticks to add even more excitement to the outing especially for kids who aren't that enthused for a hike.

Check out some safety precautions and the full tutorial at The Crafting Chicks. Plus they have a few tips for helping you size them right for your child's height.
