A big welcome to this week's It's Playtime - and an even bigger thank you to all of you who submitted your inspiring play ideas last week.
First visit to It's Playtime? You will find full instructions on how to play with us here.
Last week was all about stones, so it seems fitting that this week is all about sticks.
