Fun Functional Container Craft with Popsicle Sticks

Our Popsicle Stick Craft

I’m always looking for creative ways to entertain my children and recycle things at the same time. We constructed a craft that was both fun and functional. This craft was great because it was also an educational activity for my daughters.

What did it teach?

  1. The first lesson was about patterns. I let my children pick which Popsicle sticks they liked best, from those chosen we created a reoccurring pattern. Each time I placed the next stick onto the container they had to guess which one came next. (As a result, I had to glue them all separately; otherwise the glue would dry too quickly).
  2. Once all of the sticks were in place we counted how many we used to make the box.
  3. This is also a great activity for children who are learning to identify their colors.

Materials Used

Materials Used?

  1. Empty Clean container
  2. Glue gun and glue
  3. Popsicle sticks
  4. Scissors

How to make the container?

We go through a lot of milk cartons so I wanted to find a way to recycle some of them. I found a great video from SimpleKidsCrafts.com. I would only recommend that you add the glue one-by-one for each Popsicle stick as you place it onto your container.

This craft looks great in my kid’s play room on their bookshelf.
