Perfect Your Nativity Play Costume with a Shepherd's Crook

Monday, 3 December 2018

Whether you're putting up a nativity play in your school or local church, you know very well that no costume is complete without a genuine shepherd's crook. If you've spent hours perfecting your character's look, a natural shepherd's crook will add that final touch to make you look as authentic as possible. This short article is here to help you save some time and money searching for just the right country stick to perfect your nativity play costume.

Why Use an Authentic Shepherd's Crook?

Let's face it – real shepherd's crooks can be a bit pricey, so why should your nativity play even include a genuine wooden country crook? A real shepherd's crook, the kind still widely used by shepherds across the country, will give your play the authenticity it needs to entertain your audience and allow them to get lost in one of the oldest stories ever told. A high quality walking stick is also practically indestructible, which means that a one-time purchase can serve for generations to come.

Money-Saving Deals

Here at WalkingSticks.co.uk we stock a broad range of Shepherd's Crooks that are popular throughout the year. To meet your demands, however, we've put together three money-saving deals that allow you to buy shepherd's crooks in packs of three.

Chestnut Bark Long Shepherd's Crooks (Pack of 3)

Crook Chestnut Children's Walking Sticks (Pack of 3)

There's no denying that nativity plays are still most popular in schools. If you're putting together a play with the youngest little actors, it's important to consider the height of the shepherd's crook they'll be holding. The Crook Chestnut Children's Walking Stick is lighter and shorter than most country crooks, measuring only 92cm (36"), which makes it perfect for children under 140cm (4' 7").
