During the last few days of summer, my daughter could hardly wait for school to start. It was all she could talk about. To keep her occupied, and excited, we made back-to-school crafts. Having eaten a ton of Popsicles this summer, we made a DIY pencil using one of our favorite art supplies — Popsicle Sticks. Get those pencils sharpened – it’s time for back to school!
Back to School Popsicle Stick Pencil Craft
- 7 Popsicle Sticks
- Washable Paint
- Silver Washi Tape
- Painter’s Tape
- Elmer’s Glue
- Black Marker
Directions: Line up five Popsicle sticks evenly leaving space in between each stick, and use the painter’s tape to tape off a third of the sticks. Have your child paint the uncovered portion of the sticks yellow. Allow paint to dry, and then tape off the painted side of the sticks. (I used the same tape.) Have your child paint the other part of the sticks pink.
