These quick and easy stick figures are a cinch anywhere. All you need are sticks and grass. In this case, I used yucca fibers because the grass was too brittle midwinter. Once you get the basic stick figure down, you can embellish with seed pod dresses and any flamboyant materials at hand. I made all the figures in this post in less than an hour, about 1-2 minutes each, and I’m hardly a crafty guy. It just takes a mild effort, and willingness.

Remember - you do not need to make anything perfect. Children will make dolls out of pens and pencils or bits of leftover food. The point is to stimulate the imagination, not anatomical correctness.

Experiment with what works best for you.
