Stick Horses

I have to give credit to my husband’s awesome cousins who came up with this fun craft at the family reunion we went to in July, but I loved the simplicity and ease of this craft. There were dozens of kids making their own stick horses and there was a rodeo after!P1030999

Have your kids find a stick large enough to “ride” on. Have them draw a face on a paper bag. The bottom flap will be the nose and the eyes will be on one of the sides of the bag.

Stuff the bag with newspaper and then tie it onto your stick. Tape or glue yarn on for the mane and attach some twine for the reins and your kids have fun stick horses!


I’ll be linking up to Mom’s Library, Kids Get Crafty, Works For Me Wednesday,

  2. I have to make one of these for my daughter! Thanks for posting!
