I love popsicle stick crafts…they are easy, the kids love them, and they are very affordable! Last week we made these cute little popsicle stick trees:
My 3 year old loves the color pink (in case you couldn’t tell by the tree) and my 5 year old is becoming more and more detail oriented in crafts…it’s so much fun seeing both of their personalities as they grow up :)
To make the tree, take 7 popsicle sticks and cut each one slightly shorter than the other…I just cut them with pruning shears and estimated how long I wanted each stick. I also cut off the rounded ends so the sticks would all have flat ends.
Have your kids paint the branches, and another stick which will be the “trunk”.
Hot glue the branch sticks on to the trunk and let cool. You can also glue on other “ornaments” such as beads, pom poms, sequins…my 5 year old found a random star bead so we glued that on top of his tree.
Glue a ribbon on the back and you have a cute ornament!
