Popsicle Stick Craft: BB-8

I never know what to expect when my 4 year old says she wants to do a craft...some days she wants to color a picture, and other days she wants to make a BB-8 from Star Wars out of Popsicle sticks!

I thought it turned out well. We started by making the bottom of BB-8. It's just a simple hexagon, with two layers. We alternated which stick was on top. Then we made the head out of two layers of Popsicle sticks, and glued the antennae in between those layers.

Pom poms were added for some extra flare and BB-8 proudly hangs on my daughter's wall.

I'll be linking up to Tip Me Tuesday at Tip Junkie. What fun crafts have you made lately?

Lizard Cake

My son starts planning what he wants for his next birthday cake the day after his birthday. This past year he went through dozens of cake ideas and finally set on a lizard cake...

I'll admit it turned out like a gecko, but my son loved it, and that's all that matters, right?

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake

When my youngest turned 1, the only cake that seemed fitting for her was The Very Hungry Caterpillar! When we handed her that cake, she ate, and she ate, and she ate!

Thomas the Train Birthday Cake

My 3 year old daughter was obsessed with Thomas the Train when her birthday came around, so I knew that her birthday cake had to be reflective of this. After scouring Pinterest, I finally came up with this (and she LOVED it!):

And this is how I made it:

Popsicle Stick Boat

My 8 year old loves building things! One day he asked if we could make a boat out of Popsicle sticks, and here was the result:

I was pretty proud of how it turned out. Now we just have to seal it so it can float. I used plant pruners to cut the sticks. I used school glue when we weren't in a rush, and hot glue, especially when attaching the sides of the boat. Here's our inspiration, but my son wanted it to look more like a canoe.

This was definitely a more time-consuming craft, but he loves it, and it sits in a place of honor on his shelf. I'll be linking up to Tip Me Tuesday at Tip Junkie.
