My love for craft is increasing day by day. Looking at the kids, creating new and amazing craft items in their schools keeps me going even more. Me and my kids are big collectors and are constantly thinking of ways to recycle waste.
During the normal cleaning chores in the house, I came across some used candy sticks lying without any use. After thinking hard, my crafty mind thought why not make a candy stick box for my kids blocks.
So here’s what we made with candy sticks:
What you’ll need:
(1) Candy sticks
(4) Paint brush
Step 1: Ask your kids to paint the sticks in their favorite colors. They are surely going to love this messy play. Allow the painted sticks to dry for a while.
Step 2: Start making the box by placing the sticks in the shape of a square. Glue the ends together.
Step 3: Keep stacking and gluing the sticks one over the other. Follow the same pattern to stick the sticks as the first sqaure.
Stack till you reach the size of the box you would want.
Step 4: To make the lid for your child's box, place 2 parellel sticks horizontally and then stick vertical sticks on them.
To make the bottom neatly glue up candy sticks at the lowest square layer. Once dry, kids can keep their favorite kids toys in it and treasure them.
Make one for yourself too!
