If you have children, and are looking for a fun activity to do with them this Christmas, what follows are 3 great popsicle stick craft ideas for Christmas fun. One of the best parts about the holiday season is all of the fun activities kids get to do with their parents. In addition to it being a fun activity at the time, you will be able to pull them out every year after and remember how much fun you had making them.
One great project you can do this Christmas with your kids is to make popsicle stick star ornaments, it only requires a few materials and they are very easy to make. All you need to make popsicle stick star ornaments are 10 popsicle sticks, some glue, string or fishing line and something to color the popsicle sticks with. Then, draw an outline of the star, 2 popsicle sticks per point on the star, and glue them together.
Another great option you have to do with children on Christmas is to make a popsicle stick Christmas tree. All you need to do for this project is take a popsicle stick, and glue on another regular popsicle stick near the bottom, then consecutively smaller pieces up to a star at the top. Then, using paint or markers, just fill in what you have created with whatever designs you like.
Finally, another great project you can do with kids as a fun Christmas activity is to make a picture frame out of popsicle sticks. All you need for this are 4 popsicle, sticks 2 of which broken in half horizontally. Then, use the halved popsicle sticks to on either side of a Christmas picture, glue them together and add the full popsicle sticks as the borders. Just remember, if you are going to paint or decorate the sticks, it is a good idea to do so before you put the picture in, that way it does not get ruined!
