Martin & Sylvia: Saturdays! Printable Project Page: Gifts of Sweetness

In the Martin & Sylvia: Saturdays! story “The Gifts of Sweetness,” Mrs. Brown and Sylvia find interesting branches in a brush pile made from the old tree Sweetness. This tree was very dear to the Browns, and they know that anything her wood is used for will be filled with goodness. So Sylvia and Mrs. Brown decide to fashion the small branches into special, magical wands.

In the pictures above, you can see how Sylvia cut off the parts she didn’t want to use and then how she painted them. You can design your own and then try it out on a real branch!
