Martin is inspired by one of Sylvia's fairy houses and decides to build a child-sized house of sticks in the woods. Sylvia helps collect sticks and then has an exciting idea: "Maybe we should make everything with sticks. We could make stick beds and chairs and toys!" Luckily, Momma is into the fun too, and even finds a way to serve lunch on a stick!
