Bike, Walk and Bus!

Apr 30, 2012

If you bike, walk or bus yourselves to the store this week to make a purchase you will receive 20% off of your entire purchase. 


*The only requirement is that you remember to tell us how you safely arrived at Walking Stick, we might not remember so we need your help to give you that rockin' discount. 

And, we're having a special First Friday Event this week - the Whizpops will be playing in the back of our store, so you can come and dance and play with us for the evening. They will play from 5:30-7 on Friday May 4th. Hope to see your pretty party faces. 

Earth Day Celebration

Apr 24, 2012

We had a super fun event at the park. Thanks for sharing it with us every year MUD.


Our activities consisted of constructing 3-D rainforest puzzles courtesy of Plan Toys, coloring with our new eco-pencils and beeswax crayons, and (the most exciting part) an egg carton scavenger hunt. We re-purposed egg cartons by painting the insides with a dollop of each color we had on hand. The kids took an egg carton and walked about Caras Park and filled the cartons with bits of garbage that matched each corresponding color. 


It was so exciting to see each egg carton come back to us. The kids came up with the most amazing bits of nature and trash - and while they were focused on filling their cartons they were picking up the park (bit by bit). The earth loved this scavenger hunt!

The kids loved it too because their prize was the most amazing green tote, also courtesy of Plan Toys and the sweetest wooden tree-topped pencil. 


Happy Earth Month! If you'd like to see the rest of our album please visit our Facebook Page. If you find someone you recognize please feel free to tag them in their photo.

A day later...we've successfully completed the Eco-Egg mission.

Just in case you are wondering the center white egg is William's Egg. He's almost 6 months old and he took care of some business for us. 


Beeswax crayons and eco-eggs can make these beauties for you. Happy long Easter Weekend. Remember we aren't open on Sunday, but we will be next week.
