Fun Crafty Idea for Kids Using Craft Sticks

Updated on June 18, 2014

Materials

The great thing about this wonderful idea is there are only two things you need. The first is little circle velcro stickers. I found these in the dewing isle at my local Walmart. They are only about $4 for 20 of them and, after I made mine I realized, 20 is all you need. The second item is jumbo crafts sticks. You do not want the thinner popsicle sticks. The jumbo crafts sticks are about double the size of ordinary popsicle sticks and they work better because they are thicker and will break as easy. Plus, the velcro stickers are the perfect size to stick on the jumbo crafts sticks.

Step One: Velcro Sticker Placement

Put one of each velcro side on opposite ends of the craft stick. This makes it easier when the kids are playing with the sticks because they won't always be looking for the sticks that stick together.

That's IT!!!

You're done! This is the simplest crafts project and when you are finished you will have 20 craft sticks that your kids will love to make all different kinds of shapes with. They can make simple geometric shapes or they can make strings of crafts sticks and a large variety of other things. I use these with my 3 year old, who no longer puts everything in his mouth, but my older kids also like to play with them. It's fun for children of most ages and helps with their creativity and manipulation skills.

      Hello sadstill22! Thanks for commenting. I've always liked building things with popsicle sticks too. I think this is just a small step up from that. I hope you like the idea.
