Popsicle Stick Sign

Materials

  • Craft glue or glue gun
  • 3-by-8-inch piece of cardboard
  • 24 Popsicle sticks
  • Acrylic paints
  • Paintbrush
  • Clear acrylic spray
  • Tape and string or wire (optional)
  • Magnetic strip (optional)

Directions

  1. Help your child spread glue over the cardboard and arrange the Popsicle sticks side by side across the length of the cardboard.
  2. Press the sticks down firmly, then let the glue dry.
  3. Have your child paint the Popsicle sticks to create whatever kind of sign he wants.
  4. He may want a sign that he can hang on his bedroom door (for example, "Joshua's Room") or he may want to display a motto or phrase he likes (for example, "I love hockey!").
  5. Let the paint dry, then spray the sign with clear acrylic spray.
  6. If you like, tape string or wire to the back of the sign so that it can be hung on a door or wall. If it will be hung on a metal surface like a refrigerator, glue a magnetic strip onto the back of the sign.
