The kids wanted to make something to “decorate for spring” so we made this easy wreath popsicle stick crafts for kids. Simple, but really cute, you can whip out a few of these to use as photo frames, hang as wreaths or give as gifts.
Also, it’s just a fun craft to make with the kids because they really like popsicle sticks. Like really like ’em.
I don’t know why–I mean, they’re just sticks, but kids love popsicle stick crafts and who am I to deny them?! LOL!
The best part about making this popsicle stick craft for kids is that they can decorate them however they want.
We went with the handful of flowers on the side, but you could also let them color the popsicle sticks with markers, wrap the sticks in yarn or even decorate them with “found things” from the yard like flowers or leaves.
Basically, this is a fun and easy craft that the kids can make their own.
Now, we used school glue for ours, because we had some handy, but if you need your DIY popsicle stick craft to be more sturdy and maybe dry a little faster, you can always help the kiddo and use some hot glue.
I just, you know, don’t recommend kids using hot glue by themselves. Because it’s hot. And those little fingers–ouch!
But, if you’re looking for a kids craft that’s perfect for a rainy afternoon, uses basic craft supplies like popsicle sticks, glue and paper, this is perfect.
I mean, it’s not hours of fun or anything–it only takes about 10 minutes to make, but kids of all ages can take this super easy wooden craft sticks craft and turn it into anything by just making different shapes and sizes of hexagons and decorating it any which way.
This is literally one of the most fun popsicle stick crafts that kids of any age can make.
