These ritual sticks were made by a child accompanied by a parent to prepare the child’s 7 years ritual.
It is often tricky to accompany a child in their creative process, as adults have a tendency to take control without taking the time to watch their child mess things up. By slowing down to the child’s rythm, and giving him/her space for creation and decision making, a real connection and collaboration can develop. The creative process is then often more important than the result and can be therapeutical for both child and parent.
The making of the stick is a ritual in itself but it also has its place in a ritual and is a nice souvenir of this special moment, that will remind you and your kid about this important threshold in the child’s life each time you see it.
