Children love to treat themselves on ice creams and Popsicle to beat the heat.
And unless you are a nagging mom, you’ll love to make some or bring home some of those summer time delights for your kids.
What do you do with waste popsicle sticks after the kids lick them clean?
While most of them throw them away, I found out some wonderful and fun crafts that could be created out of leftover popsicle sticks.
10 Popsicle Sticks Crafts Ideas
Here are some easy and fun-to-put-up best out of waste popsicle stick craft ideas which you will love to create with your kids on hot summer afternoons:
1. Popsicle Stick Bow and Arrow
Take a wide popsicle stick and dip it in boiling water for 30 minutes. Remove and cool it. Once it has cooled down, it will be pliable enough to be bent into an arch. Now, gently bend it to form an arch using your thumb and fingers so that the sticks do not crack.
Try doing that by wrapping the stick around a glass like this.
For bigger or smaller arches, use smaller or larger bottles or glasses.
Now, put the arched stick in the glass again for some time so that it can hold on to its new shape and keep it so for 10 hours or so.
Later, take it out and dry it for 6-7 hours. The rest is self-explanatory. Any DIY enthusiast can manage it, I’m sure.
2. Popsicle Stick Harmonicas
This is something that is super easy to make and lots of fun too!
Just paint two sticks in any color of your choice and sandwich a piece of card stock between the two panted sticks using a rubber band at each of the two ends. Push in a toothpick near the rubber bands and cut off any extra edge that is sticking out.
And lo, there you are- blow some air through the attached popsicle sticks and create those cute sounds.Its is a very good Craft out of Popsicle sticks.
