Together we are making a web of sticks with intentions of things others may need right now. Things we may need (to name a few) are- Joy, Laughter, Hope, Growth, Safety, To Be Seen, Love, Community, Friendship, Acceptance, and Belonging. These needs webs can be created and placed in our households or out in public so friends and neighbors and passersby can take what they need.

- Sticks (from outside or wooden popsicle sticks)
Step 1: Cut your paper into little cards and write items that others may need like Joy, Laughter, Hope, Growth, Safety, To Be Seen, Love, Community, Friendship, Acceptance, and Belonging. Also write a card that says “take what you need.”
Step 2: Decorate your sticks from outside or your popsicle sticks. Paint them or color them with markers. Tie on ribbon and beads. Hot glue on puff balls.
Step 3: If using an embroidery hoop, tie one end of the yarn to it then wrap yarn around the embroidery hoop to make a spiderweb pattern. If using paper plates, cut the middle out of two plates so you only have the outer ring, then repeat the steps for the embroidery hoop. Hot glue the other plate to the back of the plate with yarn
Step 4: Clothespin your “take what you need” cards to your webs and place them in a spot where people can take what they need 😊
