Fun With Sticks

Want to know what we have been doing for fun at our house?  We have been making things out of sticks! 

I sent the kids out into the yard to gather as many sticks as they could in one minute ~ and they found a pile of them.  Then I got out my handy dandy glue gun and started creating!

Emily helped me make a chair and table.  She found some curved sticks and suggested that we turn our chair into a rocker.     IMG_2870

Mighty cute isn’t it? IMG_2872

Emily decided that since we had outdoor furniture she was going to make a small cottage for her dolls out of an oatmeal container.  She covered it with Crayola Model Magic and added small stones.  Then we hot glued some dried grass to the roof.

Here are her Polly Pockets relaxing by the fire, roasting marshmallows and enjoying a girls getaway.

What else can you make with sticks?  I used an old pickle jar to make a vase.

Aiden asked me to make a truck out of sticks.  I think I’m going to need a lot more glue for my glue gun!
