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.
